So… 20 years ago, almost to date, I published the inaugural edition of the Resident Good News! From the start, I emphasized PEOPLE and COMMUNITY. Quoted in the local papers, “It’s like a local ‘People’ magazine… It’s fun and entertaining — no Saudi Arabia, no politics and lay-offs.” “We will have something for everyone from ages 18 to 102.”
And so, it is today, ALL about people doing good things in our two-state region sprinkled with premier dining choices that ROCK page 12. Thank you for sending in your votes for your favorite restaurant! Entertainment is featured by Mohegan Sun on the back cover and our free listings for non-profits in Across the Area. A big thanks to local businesses, like Cardinal Honda and Grader Jewelers that you see featured regularly in Residents In Biz. Oh, and, don’t forget about Fripperies’ ads. And, Valenti’s back in offering a special discount to Resident readers who clip the $500 coupon. Golf Tips, Antiques, Stars ‘N Stripes, Adopt-A-Pet, Hollywood and your favorites Lifestyles, Intimacy and MORE!
Yes! My dream was to keep the phones ringing with businesses eager to buy advertising in a regional community publication. “We think we are offering them something they can’t get elsewhere—inexpensive, cost-effective advertising.”—NOV. 1990.
A GIANT THANK YOU, FROM THE HEART OF OUR RESIDENT TEAM, TO YOU, OUR READERS, OUR DISTRIBUTION SITES AND TO OUR ADVERTISERS FOR HELPING TO MAKE THE GOOD NEWS ROCK! SYNERGY AT ITS BEST!!!
