Cindy’s history: I was originally hired at The Edgerton Earth by John and Michele Tinker as their bookkeeper in July of 1990. From there I dabbled at typesetting, filling in for Donna Lump. She eventually retired and I tried my hand at advertising layout as well as taking pictures at sporting events. You might say I learned each facet of the business a little at a time. It came as no surprise to everyone when I decided to purchase the newspaper from then owner and editor Steve Wilmot. I took over the reins of ownership on October 1, 2006. Barb came to work for me first which is a bit ironic because my previous employer before I was hired by John and Michelle was with her husband, father-in-law and brother-in-law at Imm Tractor Sales.

Karrie gave up babysitting to come join us at The Earth. Karrie and I also have a bit of history. Her husband Don was best man at our wedding and Karrie was stationed at the guest book.

The three of us have a good rapport and enjoy our time spent at the office.
