New chapter

Change is one of the few constants we can count in life. As time marches on, all of us either adjust or die. The Free Press, and its founding publisher, Joel Klaassen, has chosen to embrace the future proactively with the sale of his majority interest in Kansas Publishing Ventures to Joey and Lindsey Young. The deal was made without pressure, whether from economic or personal health issues. It is simply the right time and the right people.

We look forward to Hillsboro and Marion County getting to know the Youngs. In the meantime, we at the Free Press are still committed to putting out the best newspaper we can for the readership area we cover. Our mission is far from over. It is simply entering a new chapter, which we trust you will continue to support. ?DR
