A breath of new life
Over the last couple of years, a lot has changed locally. The Ranchero Road underpass opened and the interchange broke ground, a Vallarta Supermarket is moving into the old Von’s building at I Avenue and Main Street, we had a little Hesperia cowboy in a Doritos commercial during the Super Bowl and Thurston “Smitty” Smith once again became our mayor.
The Hesperia Star has also seen its fair share of changes over the last couple of years. Some of our news content has slimmed, our page count has decreased and local names and faces are fewer than they were.
What hasn’t changed is the Star’s focus: providing Hesperia with quality community news, feature stories and personality profiles not found in any other publication.
Welcoming Steve Hunt as the new editor of the Daily Press last week will allow us to refocus a lot of energy and effort into the Hesperia Star. One way we plan to do that is to be more visible in this community. Beginning today, I plan to work at the Star office at least once a week on Tuesdays, and possibly more often depending on our newspaper’s needs.
Another way we plan to breathe some new life into this publication requires your help: we want to hear from you! Let us know when you have a story idea, want to suggest a resident for a profile or have an event you’d like us to share with the rest of the community. Send me an email at Editor@HesperiaStar.com, call our office at 760-956-7827, call me directly at 760-951-6236 or stop by our office at 15550 Main St., suite C-11.
We thank you for your continued support over these leaner years and we hope to bring you each week a newspaper that properly represents the wonderful community and residents of Hesperia.
