Publishing a newspaper in a small town is truly a joint effort between that small town's citizens, civic organizations, government structures, and businesses - along with the staff of the newspaper.
With that in mind, a few changes internally have taken place at the Hoffman Tribune newspaper, as the editor has taken on sales/advertising duties along with the regular editing and photojournalism of the week-to-week activities around Hoffman/Kensington/Farwell.
As of Wednesday this week (Sept 30), the editor will finally be moved out of Belgrade as he looks towards working full time hours with the Hoffman Tribune.
(Ok, more like, now the editor can earn better compensation for the full-time hours he regularly puts in anyway at the Tribune!)
A stronger commitment to using submitted stories and photos from local residents will be one of the goals the staff at the Hoffman Tribune will work on as we come out of what was a very rough spell over the past 12-14 months.
As the editor (hopefully!) finds success bringing in new advertising, readers can look forward to seeing more pages published at least twice per month - whereas in the summer of 2009, eight pages was almost always the norm, with the exception of the August 13th issue leading up to the Hoffman Harvest Festival.
Enjoy the fall weather! I think summer's finally over!
