At 132, we’re still kickin’

Notice on our masthead on the front page of this week’s paper the words  “Volume 132, No. 52”, which means that we are having a birthday this week. The origins of this newspaper began in 1884, so that puts us at 132 years old.

I’ve been a part of this newspaper for about 23 years, having served as part-time ‘stuffer’ in junior high and high school, as a column writer reporting the Copiah Academy news during my senior year and for the past nineteen-and-one-half years in nearly every capacity as a full-time newspaper employee/account manager/editor/publisher/web administrator/etc.  From as far back as I remember, I’ve read a newspaper almost every day.  I still do and don’t see that changing anytime.  My day doesn’t flow well unless and until I have an actual newspaper in my hand.

My staff and I work hard and are proud to bring you the news about Copiah County each week.  We hope you love it as much as we do.  Here’s to another 132 years!
