A big thank you to Bob and Carol Boston for remembering to bring their Navarre Press with them to Navarre, Ohio.

We used to have a lot more entries for “On the Road” with Navarre Press and we use to promote it more. If and when you go to somewhere notable, please bring your Navarre Press and we will put the picture in the paper.

If you haven’t registered to vote in the November election, it’s too late.

The registration closed Tuesday, Oct. 11. Locally this election will decide your District 2 commissioner and District 4 commissioner for Santa Rosa County.

Our reporter and team member, Ken Garner contributed the following one of our other newspapers, and I’m sharing it this week in my column.

This week (Oct. 2-8) is National Newspaper Week and, while it’s relatively anonymous as far as “holidays” go, it is a great time to consider just how important local newspapers are to communities across our nation and the world.
