Letter to the Editor

Congratulations CCN!

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Dear Carroll County News Editor,

Congratulations on your newspaper being named the best weekly newspaper in the state, not just once, but for the second year in a row.

This prestigious honor for overall excellence presented by the Arkansas Press Association is the direct result of the consistent hard work by you and your fine team of journalists and photographers, who capture that elusive hometown feeling Berryville residents enjoy.

Your coverage week after week of what’s happening in Berryville and in the entire surrounding county keeps citizens informed and connected with one another in our close-knit community. You help numerous civic, church and non-profit organizations tell their story. Your community calendar keeps people up to date on things to do locally. Your photos of school sports, business ribbon cuttings, and unique feature stories give us memories we get to clip out and paste into our scrapbooks or tape onto our refrigerator doors. You do so much to chronicle the story of our lives, and you do it with excellence.

Berryville is and always has been an excellent place to live, work and play. We are lucky to have a newspaper like yours, committed to excellence, reflecting the best of our town. Thank you for all that you do. Best wishes for your continued success!


Steve Johnson
