There are 15,000 people over age 50 in Cold Lake, Bonnyville, St Paul and the surrounding area.
That’s a small city unto itself.
Think of Respect as the community newspaper in this “city” of seniors and seniors-to-be.
“People have asked me how I came to call the paper Respect. I’ll tell you.
“Most newspapers will have a pretty common name—you know, The Times or The Gazette or The Tribune or The Post. But these words essentially just mean ‘newspaper.’ They don’t tell you anything about what’s inside.
“So I asked myself, what should senior readers expect from us? When they choose to spend an hour reading our newspaper, what do we owe them? What do I want the paper to be known for? And I kept coming back to the same thing: respect.
“So that’s what I decided to call it. And now we get to live up to it.”
