As the online editor for The Idaho County Free Press, most of my work is done, well, online. I rarely set foot in the office in Grangeville, instead working from the comfort of my living room.
Last Friday, however, I did attend a meeting at the office and was looking forward to meeting the latest addition to the Free Press family. When Jenna Carroll turned around, she must have seen the surprised look of recognition on my face.
“Yeah, I live in Nezperce,” she said with a smile.

So, if you’d like to place an ad in the Idaho County Free Press, contact Jenna (or Lisa Adkison): 208-983-1200.
