Year 2011 Marks The Country Register's 24th Anniversary
It is the beginning of the 24th Anniversary for The Country Register. I remember the very first issue, born in Arizona. It was very small, a little shy on advertisers, very shy on articles. Color was not widely used and in our case, not used at all. It was back in the days when you cut and pasted each item in the paper on a page to send to the printer. But that was the way of publishing in 1988. Since then many, many changes have changed the way of doing everything in the business. Since 1988 Michigan (first after Arizona) and then all the many other states and provinces, one by one, were added to our list of publishers. It is something worth celebrating.
The Country Register Has Several New Publishers
The Country Register, the newspaper that is all across the country, occasionally has new publishers come aboard. This has taken place several times in the past few months. Dee Sleep in South Dakota has taken on the publication that covers a very large area covering the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming and N. Idaho. She is looking forward to her new venture and has printer's ink in her veins. At one time this was broken into two publications and her goal is to make that happen again.
In Canada we bid Celia Hayton, long time publisher, goodby when her assistant Ruth Burke became the new publisher of the Alberta edition.
Within this past year Christi Moore became publisher of the Kentucky-Tennessee Country Register. Christi is a daughter of Barb Moore who does the Ohio edition.
Lenda Williams is loving her venture as publisher of Country Registers and is now doing Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois.
There is still opportunity in a very few areas. Check our publishers list either online or in one of our many publications across the country and see if you see an opportunity that fits your skills.
