Message from the publisher
Assuming the role of publisher of the Hood County News is a humbling undertaking.
There are award plaques that literally circumnavigate the entire facility. Continuing this 134- year tradition of excellence will be a daunting task but a responsibility I accept without reservation.
The Hood County News will undergo some changes. Some will be subtle, and others will be quite dramatic like the design change at the top of the paper.
We will be countywide in our coverage, and we will report on the activities of all three school districts as well as the independent Christian schools. We will promote businesses, events and charities as well as tell the thousands of interesting stories of the people who reside here.
We will report on the activities of our local government and do so in a way as to fairly present the issues that confront our county and allowing the readers to draw their own conclusions.
Hood County is the ninth fastest-growing county in America. Going forward the Hood County News will do its part to see our growth and prosperity continue as we fulfill our sacred obligation to inform the public in a fair, balanced and impartial way.
God bless Hood County and all her residents.
