Changes at Access Press

Last month we said goodbye to editorial assistant Nathan Halvorson.  He’s not totally gone, however; you’ll see his byline on page 7 this month, writing about something he really knows a lot about—music!  Glad you’re still in the picture, Nathan.

Every goodbye brings a hello, so this month we get to say “Welcome!” to new editorial assistant Laurie Eckblad Anderson.  Laurie brings a wealth of proofreading and editing experience to the paper, as well as strong office management and bookkeeping skills.  Having worked mostly in the book business, she is eager to learn the “nuts and bolts” of the newspaper business.  Laurie’s contributions will have a big effect on shaping Access Press.

Laurie’s first training day was August 6th.  She’ll be starting her regular schedule after Labor Day, so you’ll soon be hearing her friendly voice on the telephone when you call the office.  Welcome, Laurie!

As happy as we are to have Laurie on board, it was difficult to say no to all of the other very strong candidates for the position.  A big Thank You to all of you who applied.

Well, it actually happened—the Access Press office has moved!  As of Thursday, July 12th, the address is 104 S, here in the Griggs Midway Building.  Due to the efforts of long-time Access Press staff person Donna McNamara, who has been working in the office helping with the
transition process (and everything else!) this summer, the move went very smoothly, with very little interruption in the day-to-day operations of the paper.  The exact date for the open house has not yet been set; stay tuned to Access Press for details.
