Advertising sales are the lifeblood of the Cooperator. So we could not be more pleased to announce that one of the Shore’s most experienced ad salespeople has joined our sales staff. Beginning with this issue of the Cooperator, Sandra Beazley will be putting her experience and contacts to work to strengthen the Eastern Shore’s only community newspaper. As she explains in the accompanying note, she is closing her most recent publication, It’s Shore Business/Shore Business Advertiser, where she demonstrated her single-handed mastery of the entire publishing process. With Sandra on board, we look forward to making the Cooperator bigger and better in the years to come.
