Happy New Year from the Kuna Melba News. Needless to say, 2010 wasn't a standout year as we all struggle to bounce back from the recession. But we are still here and we have no plans to go out of business. We are looking forward to a strong 2011, and we've got some plans in the works to continue to improve our newspaper and ways to reach more readers in Kuna.
For those of you who don't know us, the Kuna Melba News is a locally owned and operated weekly newspaper based in Kuna. Started in 1982, the newspaper has been owned by Scott and Nicola McIntosh of Kuna since September 2006.
We are a mom-and-pop operation, but we have been recognized for excellence statewide and nationally by the Idaho Press Club and the National Newspaper Association.
We have now won nine NNA awards and seven Idaho Press Club awards, including several first place awards in such categories as community service, serious column, feature story, sports feature, religion reporting and newspaper series.
Keep watching as we make improvements and announce special offers and deals in the coming months.
