Depending on when you receive this newspaper, you will probably have crossed the threshold into 2020. Let me first take this opportunity to thank you for supporting the Charlton County Herald over the last decade and ask for your continued support in 2020.

As we approach this New Year let’s hope and pray for a blessed year that brings more unity. I pray for unity among our local, state, and expressly our national leaders. The folks in Washington can’t seem to figure out that we the people are screaming for more bipartisanship to address the country’s needs and problems.

Regarding this newspaper in 2020, stay tuned for some exciting changes, including the unveiling of a new design in the coming weeks. It is my desire to bring a fresh new look to the newspaper as well as introduce new feature content on the people that make up this community. Gardner Newspapers and the Herald will also be introducing a new magazine product to the Charlton and surrounding area in 2020, Mature Living. This is a quarterly senior-living magazine product that we know our readers will love.

However, I need your help. If you know of a news item or know an individual you’d like to see recognized in the Herald or Mature Living, please let us know. Call us at 912-496-3585 or email us at

I hope that 2020 will be a year filled with happiness and prosperity for you and your family. Again, thank you for your continued support of this newspaper and we look forward to serving you in 2020.
