We’re happy to say that the Spirit of Jefferson is now available in more places than ever. After last week’s edition went out, we set up two new newspaper boxes, one outside of Rainbow Diner & Truck Stop, a dinette in Rippon, and the other outside the post office in Summit Point.
We’re also very pleased to be selling the Spirit now at the Railside Market, a family-owned business at 2871 Summit Point Road in Summit Point.
For more than six years now, the market has served as a prime gathering place for Summit Point residents, delivering a combination of old-fashioned country market and diner known for fresh-brewed Black Dog coffee and a variety of daily specials, freshly made pizza, subs, sandwiches and other fare. (Find out more at railsidemarket.com.)
Earlier this year, we also added our papers to two Berkeley County locations – Martin’s grocery store and Walmart, both on Foxcroft Avenue in Martinsburg. Our aim is to continue to make it easier to get your hands on our paper each week.
In a related development, you may have seen in the pages of the Spirit in recent weeks a handy subscription form for those who haven’t yet signed up for a year of home delivery of our paper.
We’d had many requests for such a form but it’s still an option simply to call our office manager Cara Young at 304-725-2046, ext. 21, and pay by credit card or mail a check to our office at 114 N. Charles St., Charles Town 25414.
In the “going” department, we prepare to say goodbye to Kim Schell, a talented, hard-working graphic designer who has been part of the Spirit family for some 18 years.
She is looking forward to a more flexible schedule as a retiree but has agreed to fill in when we have staff members on vacation and as other needs arise. We are grateful for that, and for all her years of fine service.
