From the Publisher

The January Issue offers an opportunity for Community Impact Newspaper to update readers on the news we covered in 2014 and the big news stories ahead for 2015.

It is also a good time to remind readers of the growth of CIN in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and share with you our plans for the new year.

Four years ago with five employees, we started CIN in Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake, offering those communities hyperlocal and useful news. In August 2013 we launched the Frisco paper, and in late 2014 our Plano edition, with the largest circulation in the company's history, made its way into homes and businesses as well. We also moved our DFW regional headquarters to Frisco and began hiring the staff for a McKinney paper, which launches in spring 2015.

Of course with all this growth comes challenges, surprises and obstacles. The DFW team has a passion and commitment for reporting your local news without bias or opinion. We work hard to deliver a quality newspaper you can understand and use.

We are appreciative of our partnerships with our advertisers, and I hope you continue to find time to support them in 2015. We are also grateful for the relationships we have with our news sources and, of course, you—our readers.

I don't know what 2015 will hold. I am hopeful for more of the same: growth, challenges, obstacles, excitement and maybe even a few surprises.

Happy New Year to all.
