Publishers LuAnn and Scott Schindler share the first edition of the Summerland Advocate-Messenger, which was hot off the press July 24.

The Summerland Advocate-Messenger, a new community newspaper, makes its print and online debut this week.

The paper is a trademarked publication owned by ColdType Publishing, LLC, and operated by Scott and LuAnn Schindler, of Clearwater.

LuAnn is a veteran journalist and journalism educator. She ran a successful freelance business and worked as a regional correspondent for the Norfolk Daily News before assuming the role of managing editor at the Clearwater Record-Ewing News.

She has received writing and editing honors from the Nebraska Press Association, Nebraska Press Women and National Federation of Press Women.

Scott, a native of Ewing, works alongside his parents, Jake and Carolyn, at the family's farm, located southwest of Ewing.

The Summerland Advocate-Messenger will cover the communities of Clearwater, Ewing, Orchard, Page and Royal.

"We believe in the importance of community, our community - the Summerland community - and know the importance of sharing the joys and concerns of all who reside here," LuAnn said. "The heartbeat of this publication is community, and together, we will thrive and share responsible, trustworthy stories from rural America."

The business will soon move into The Office building, located at 522 Main Street, Clearwater.

Local residents will receive two weeks of the publication, free of charge, via mail service.

Subscription details are included on Page six of the publication.

An E-edition will be available for individuals who prefer to receive and read their news in a digital format.

In addition to the weekly newspaper, commercial printing, including envelopes, letterheads, specialty forms, banners, posters and billboards, will be offered.
