Working on April Paper

The last few days I've been doing one of the things I enjoy the most--gathering articles for the paper.

Several columnists write for the Nebraska Family Times almost every month, and I look forward to reading their columns.

We have several new advertisers this month, so I've been working with them to get the information I need to have Tracy or Jennifer set up their ads. Please patronize the businesses of those who advertise in the Nebraska Family Times--they are a valuable part of my business--and let them know you saw their ad in the Nebraska Family Times.

Every month I look ahead to the holidays that will occur in the coming month, and find appropriate articles. In April the most important holiday, of course, is Easter. But April also marks National Organ Donor Month and the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. I've compiled the info for the article about organ donation, and am searcing for a good article about the King James Bible.

The National Day of Prayer if May 5th. I plan to have the May issue of the paper out before that date, but am including the information in this issue, so readers can plan ahead and attend events on that date.

I also look for articles about local and area events or issues. I found a great article that looks into the case of the male wrestler in Iowa who forfeited a match in which he was scheduled to wrestle against a female. The article looks at the issue from a values point of view vs. the "human" point of view and is very interesting.

I'm writing three articles for this issue; one about the Habitat for Humanity, which plans to build a home in Columbus, NE, starting in May; one about Heart Hero Capes, and one about local author and speaker Deb Burma.

If you have not seen the Nebraska Family Times but would like a FREE sample issue, e-mail me at shelly@shellyburke.net or call (402) 993-2467.
