Rep. Miloscia honored

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness selected State Rep. Mark Miloscia, D-District 30, to receive its annual national “Home for Every American” State Legislative Award. He is the sole recipient of this award for 2008.

Sound Publishing buys newspapers

Sound Publishing Inc. has announced the purchase of the Enumclaw Courier-Herald and its sister publication in Bonney Lake. The Courier-Herald newspapers had previously been owned by a group made up of the estate of Ted Natt, John Natt, David Natt, and publisher Bill Marcum. Marcum will remain in his current position with Sound Publishing.

Each edition of the Courier-Herald newspapers reaches 31,000 homes and is distributed free to readers from Black Diamond to Bonney Lake.

Sound Publishing, with headquarters in the Kitsap County community of Poulsbo, is a subsidiary of Black Press, based in British Columbia. The parent organization owns more than 150 newspapers in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, along with Washington, Hawaii and Ohio. The largest papers in the group are the Akron (Ohio) Beacon and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Sound Publishing owns the Federal Way Mirror.

Sound Publishing has been making inroads through the Puget Sound region in recent years. The group purchased 11 publications in November 2006 from Horvitz Newspapers and shortly thereafter expanded its reach by moving those publications into the communities they serve and launching newspapers in Sumner and Issaquah.
