A glossy, new publication just arrived at our office Friday afternoon.

Although the Visitors’ Guide is nothing new - and is something The Empire-Tribune has been putting out for years — this edition is unique, appearing as a sleek magazine publication featuring everything a visitor, new comer and community member would ever want to know about Erath County.

The Visitors’ & Community Guide 2007-08 will be available tomorrow at the E-T, Stephenville and Dublin Chamber of Commerces, as well as area banks, real estate offices and many other locations.

From where to park your RV to information on the school systems, area sports, voter registration and how to get a hunting license, this comprehensive publication has it all.

Make sure to grab a copy.

What’s important for you to know about this is that the Visitors’ Guide is produced locally by our staff. Lots of blood, sweat and tears were put into making this the best ever, while the staff continued to produce the daily newspaper and other special sections.

I want to thank my great staff, as well as the various businesses and organizations that helped us make this endeavor possible.

I believe our newest creation highlights the many exciting things happening in our area. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
