On Monday August 4, 2014 the guest speakers at the regular noon meeting of the Kentland Rotary club, invited by Rotarian John Cook, were Gregory Myers, managing editor and Greg Perrotto, marketing manager for the Newton County Enterprise.

Mr. Myers comes from southern Illinois with 13 years of newspaper experience and has just completed his first month at the Enterprise. He is excited about this job opportunity and the growth potential of the newspaper.

He and Greg discussed their focus on hyper-local news stories, North and South Newton school news and sports. Being halfway between the Chicago and Indianapolis news markets there is a need to fill this gap in local coverage.

A redesigned Newton County Enterprise is being planned with more color and new format and their website is being updated.

Gregory encouraged organizations and individuals to contact him about events and newsworthy stories that he may not be aware of as a newcomer to the area. His goal for the Enterprise is to provide better, more comprehensive area coverage for his readers.
