Our new graphic designer is James Mulcahy. You might remember him for his award-winning photography and writing during his tenure as my editor at The Clay City Times. April Smith, who did a wonderful graphic design job for us since our first issue, now has a full time teaching position. Our thanks and good wishes to April and her family.
We hope you enjoy this issue and continue to support FOCUS Magazine as we grow and attempt each month to keep to our mission statement to “promote central and eastern Kentucky, to encourage tourism, support our small businesses and entrepreneurs, recall our history, highlight our present and improve our future.”
