Pick your winner

Bob Bonnar

Far too often elections bring out the worst in people, so it is refreshing every other year to be able to ask our readers to shift their focus to the best in people immediately after the election and start submitting their nominees for the News Letter Journal’s annual Person of the Year recognition.

The NLJ’s Person of the Year for 2018 will be revealed in the special first edition of 2019, which will include feature stories on our other nominees in addition to the story of the individual chosen as the person who made the greatest impact on the community in the previous year.

Our past honorees have come from all walks of life, but all of them have shared a desire and will to improve the quality of life in Weston County, and build a brighter future for the people who call this place home.

That makes the first issue of every year one of our favorites, but we also love the fact that it is even more of a community endeavor than our normal weekly publications because the nominees for Person of the Year come from you — the people whose true investment in the community is reflected in their desire to be informed and involved in it through these pages every week.

The News Letter Journal’s primary mission is to tell the story of this community, and we couldn’t do that without the contributions of our readers. We enjoy the fact that we get to re-affirm that connection in the first issue of every year by asking you to submit the names of the community members you would like us to feature in that issue. Then join us in celebrating all of the chosen nominees and the contributions they’ve made to the community when the issue hits the racks on January 2, 2019. (It’s always good to have something to look forward to right away in the new year!)

So please think about the people in our community who truly make a difference here, day-in and day-out. Submit their names by dropping them at our office at 14 W. Main, emailing them to editor@newslj.com or by mail to PO Box 40, Newcastle, WY 82701.
