The Issue: The New Old
Yes, Over Easy, Please has a new but â€śoldâ€ť nostalgic look which hails from around the 1900s. We are very pleased to inform our readers that in addition to the new/old look, we have also tripled the distribution of OEP. From the onset, OEP was in its humble community-style canary yellow stock paper and toner-printed version. We are pleased to announce that we have moved away from the photocopied look and feel. Other than a few new additions to our content, such as â€śSunny Smiles,â€ť â€śBeautiful Babes,â€ť and â€śA Spoonful of Sugar,â€ť and contributing guest writers, OEPâ€™s content will basically remain the same style for our readersâ€™ enjoyment.
The main goal of OEP, from our beginnings was to keep our advertising affordable and the design of our ads as professional in appearance as possible. Working with OEP on many advertisements are our 3 professional designers. We are maintaining affordable advertising rates even though we have made the transition to a newsprint paper.
We are also aware that too often, advertisements get overlooked when the pagination becomes excessive, therefore as OEP grows, we will continue to be diligent in maintaining a newspaper that is enjoyable to read but one that continues to keep our advertisers pleased. Of course, with our distribution increase, there will be more newsstands within the Fort for the convenience of our readers.
The Senior Editor of OEP is Reece Sellin, who will continue to be committed in making OEP an even more outstanding newspaper.
Our long-time contributing writers, who we are very appreciative of, are still on board with us, including popular author and public speaker, Brian Mason. As well, we are still enclosing in the pages of our new paper, Pastor Bill Olsenâ€™s column. I ask you, where else can you get weekly spirituality, along with some off-the-wall humor that somehow just makes your day a better one? I must comment here, that in person, Pastor Bill is even more enjoyable. Stop in for a Sunday morning service at Life Church to hear and see this amazingly unique pastor.
And, would it really be a newspaper without a cartoonist? I think OEP has one of the best cartoonists, in originality, artistic talent and dedication. Thank you, Ken Schotsch! Of course, we have not forgotten Jai Murugan, who has been with OEP for quite some time now. Oddly enough, I do get his humor, which has been derived from a single word. Jai is thoroughly enjoyed by our readers. And when our readers have seen the better and professional pictures in OEP, please read the caption as it is more than likely photographer Kevin Bonk. Kevin is very talented, and in a short time more of his talent will be on display for many to be in awe of.
And, what newspaper can justify not having a pet section? I canâ€™t count the times I have wanted to go to Second Chance Animal Rescue Society to adopt another pet; what fantastic bios about these beautiful pets! Bless the folks that convey the message for these precious creatures.
Thanks to technology, OEP also has an online version which is extremely popular for reasons we havenâ€™t all figured out yet. OEP get visits from all over the world… and that is a good thing! Thank you for reading OEP. We really appreciate your support. Keep watching… as one day, who knows — OEP may just be on the stands in colour!
