“Over the last six years I have thrown myself headfirst into the newspaper business,” Head said. “I am proud of the fact that I have built a strong sports department for local coverage at the Journal-Herald through hard work. I have gained even more valuable experience writing news and editorials serving as interim editor and current editor of The Alma Times. I have built a reputation for being fair and honest with my reporting. His wife, Sandy, has over 20 years of experience working for SouthFire Newspapers. She has worked her way up the ladder to General Manager status. Currently, she has taken on the duties as Sales Manager at The Alma Times. I am so excited and scared at the same time,” Sandy Head said. “This has been a dream of mine, and Rick’s, for a long time. We want to have a quality newspaper that you will be proud to call yours. Really, this is not about us. This is for Brantley County and I hope you will support us. We are pleased to say that Taylor Gill is our office manager. So, “If you have any questions,” said Rick Head, “please don’t hesitate to call the office 912.462.2326 and speak with Taylor. The Heads have already lined up a local news reporter and two local photographers to help with taking pictures of Brantley County sporting events. This is going to be a community-wide effort,” said Rick Head. “I’m asking for help from the community to supply us with church news, local news, photographs and story ideas. We want to receive wedding announcements, birth announcements, anniversary announcements. We’re in the business of recording the community’s history. The Heads have six children and currently seven grandchildren.
