Oh, the places our paper goes

Robert Slocum, Publisher

Most Wednesday mornings, it’s my pleasure to drive up to Mobridge and retrieve the newspaper. Once back at Topic HQ, we sort and label the papers to prepare them to mail.

One thing that always strikes me as we complete this task is the people and places our newspaper travels to. I see familiar names and strangers alike on our mailing list. The bulk of it stays in South Dakota and much of that is our base of local readers; the names and faces who fill our pages.

Our out of state subscribers are interesting to consider. I ponder them as I peel, stick, flip the labels. I see family ties. Folks who moved away but still love it back home. College kids. Former residents and probably future residents.

It’s pretty cool taking a look at the whole thing and seeing all the places the Topic goes.
