Editor’s Notes

February 2019

We made it! This year, Boyle McCauley News officially turns 40.

We could not have made it this far without our many dedicated volunteers who write, photograph, proofread, deliver, serve on the board, and do a variety of other things that keep the paper going. This includes our loyal readers who have supported the paper for so long.

Speaking of supporting the paper, we have raffle tickets available for your chance to win a trip for two to Italy. Tickets are $10 each and there are only 2,500 printed. Contact me at editor@bmcnews.org for more information. You can also reach me there for information about volunteering with the paper.

We’re now on our new publication schedule, which means there are only eight papers this year, spaced six weeks apart. Our next issue will be published in mid-March. Those of you who are online should be sure to check out our website at bmcnews.org and follow us on social media, as we will be posting community-related items in between our print issues. We are on Instagram (@bmcviews), Facebook, and Twitter (@bmcnews in both places).

Volunteer With Us!

We are always looking for new writers and photographers, as well as ideas for future stories. We also regularly need block carriers to help with the delivery and distribution of the paper. Email Paula with your submissions, feedback, ideas, and availability. We also ask that contributors read our Editorial Guidelines and that all volunteers read and agree to our Code of Conduct.
