Happy birthday, Post!

By Post editor, Judy Reed

What were you doing, in July, 23 years ago, when the Cedar Springs Post was born? Some of the headlines for July 1988 included:

•    USSR launches Phobos II for Martian orbit
•    Sting performs first rainforest concert
•    Florence Joyner runs 100m in 10.49 seconds for world record
•    4 billion tv viewers watch Nelson Mandela’s 70th birthday tribute
•    Michael Dukakis selected as Democratic presidential candidate

Some people here grew up with the Cedar Springs Post, and don’t remember what it was like not to have their own hometown newspaper. The previous newspaper, The Cedar Springs Clipper, served the area well for over 100 years. Once it closed, the area relied on out-of-town newspapers for four years to publish only bits and pieces of Cedar Springs news, much like area newspapers do today. Then on July 28, 1988, Roger Allen, publisher of the Rockford Squire, rented out an office from Sipple TV, on 36 E. Maple Street in Cedar Springs, and started the great little newspaper you still have today—The Cedar Springs Post.

Roger’s daughter, Lois, took over operation of the paper, with her mother Alice, in 1989, and the paper has undergone changes in staff, style and adapted to the times. We started out as an all black and white newspaper, and slowly introduced color. We now have more color pages on a weekly basis than ever before, which means more room for color photos showcasing our community. We’ve also introduced technology for those who would rather interact with us through the computer. You can communicate with us by email, and we now have our website newspaper (cedarspringspost.com) and a facebook page. Both sites are interactive and we really like to see your questions and comments.

We’ve also recently introduced another product—an e-edition. The e-edition is a digital pdf copy of the paper that goes to print each week, complete with ads. This edition, which you can find a link to on our website, is for those people who might prefer to read our paper online, but want to see everything as it was published. It’s a good option for those who live in another city, state or country and don’t like to wait weeks to get their paper in the mail. This version is not interactive, however. It’s just an electronic version  of the paper copy. You can access the e-edition by going to our website (www.cedarspringspost.com) and clicking on e-edition. This version will be free for a limited time, and will eventually be added as a choice of something you can subscribe to. Please take a look, and let us know what you think of the e-edition, by email (news@cedarspringspost.com), by commenting on this story on our website, or posting on our facebook page.

On the down side, our newsroom and sales staff is the slimmest it’s ever been. And that is a reflection of the newspaper industry in general. We thank you, our readers, for your loyalty and willingness to step in and be citizen journalists from time to time. We love getting your photos and news about local events. And we thank our business partners for seeing the importance of supporting us, your local newspaper. Local businesses that advertise in the paper are what pays for the paper to be printed each week. We ask our readers to also thank them by shopping with them and letting them know you saw them in the Post!

One thing that hasn’t changed is our mission. We still try to deliver the news you can use each week. In addition to the regular “hard” news such as accidents and fires, where else will you find what size catfish Johnny caught, who won the spelling bee, what the women’s club did last week, and who was arrested for drunken driving? Nowhere! Because the other papers don’t care—but we do. This newspaper is about YOU. And it will continue to be about you as long as we’re here. Thank you for the opportunity to let us into your home each week, and we look forward to a new year of serving you.
