Introduction I am an award-winning writer and editor who is writing a book about our family's experience of buying and running a weekly newspaper in southwest Idaho from 2006 to 2011. After having spent 13 years in the newspaper business from Carlsbad, N.M., to Cleveland, Ohio, to San Mateo, Calif., to Rochester, N.Y., my wife and I purchased the Kuna Melba News in September 2006. We quit my job at the Democrat and Chronicle, sold our house and moved with our two small boys 2,300 miles to a state we'd never even been to before to run a small community weekly newspaper. During our time as owners, the Kuna Melba News won 15 Idaho Press Club awards and 12 National Newspaper Association awards in several categories, including investigative reporting, religion reporting, sports feature writing, business reporting, education reporting, health and medical reporting and columns and editorials.
