LOL. So the good old boy network of small town advertising journals got together and divided up some prizes among themselves. Why doesn’t the weekly cover the entire event instead of just tooting it’s own horn???
So bill Johnson takes credit for the editorials. Not surprising given that many of these “ editorials” are actually propaganda, pushing an agenda being peddled by Johnson, which is favorable to a certain number of very vocal women in the community.
