Stepping Down as Editor of the Kiowa County Press

By Connie McPherson

It is with sad regret that I must step down as Editor of the Kiowa County Press due to health reasons. I will be soon moving to Kansas City, MO with my daughter for treatment and hopefully will be back to my home in Eads within the year.

I started my career with the Press in April 1974 when Betz Publishing Company of Lamar bought the paper from Jack Gardner. I was a type setter at the time but soon found out that one job title would just not cut it in the small town paper business, so I branched out and learned to do all the jobs required to get the paper published each and every week. I also learned how to do job printing on the platen printer press and offset press we used to have, and I must say the newer offset printing equipment is so much better.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with all the reporters and advertisers in my 41 year stay and even decided to move into the Town of Eads to be closer to work. I love living in this town where everyone looks out for everyone else and a new friend is just a smile away.

The Press will be undergoing changing pains for next few weeks, but I have confidence that Jeanne and Chris will find someone else capable of handling the job so they can go back to their regular work. So if things go a little haywire just let them know and they will do everything in their power to get the problem fixed in a hurry. Please give them all the support you can by sending your articles and ads in early to

Card of Thanks

I want to thank everyone who

signed and designed the retirement card for me.

I got a kick out of reading all the

encouraging sayings in it, and show of support.

Hope to see you all again in a year.
