This past Saturday, August 15 marked a milestone for The Lewisville Texan Journal. As of just a little after midnight when our first good paper copy of The Lewisville Texan Journal rolled off the printers, we are now a print publication. Our inaugural edition was only four pages, but it’s a start. LTJ will become a weekly print edition.

This is an idea that has been in the works for about a year. With help from LTJ’s supporters, and many hours of hard work from Associate Editor Brandon Cooper, Philip Moulard of The Lake City Swallow and myself, we finally made it happen.

You can find free copies of The Lewisville Texan Journal beginning each Saturday morning in the following locations:

- The Lewisville Public Library
- The MCL Grand Theater
- Coffeeholic
- Hat Tricks
- Bahama Buck’s
- Tierney’s Cafe and Tavern
- Pomegranate Underground
- Lewisville Senior Activity Center (Monday)
- More locations to be announced soon

For now, nothing changes in the way we’ve been providing you with Lewisville news and updates. We’ll continue to write and post stories here on our website, and we’ll continue to share them on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll also continue to share links to stories from other outlets that we think you will enjoy. But now there will be an alternative for readers who prefer paper in their hands. We are going to try to keep LTJ free for readers just as long as we can.

Naturally, since we are printing on paper now, our expenses each month will increase quite a bit. Our goal is to have advertisers pick up that cost, and maybe leave some additional revenue that would help us increase our news coverage. As you may already know, The Lewisville Texan Journal has been a volunteer-run publication for years online, but with additional revenue, we might be able to pay for more quality journalism to fill our pages. We would also like to be able to pay someone to help us move this site to newer software. Until that happens, we’ll continue to support the LTJ with ads on our website, and through contributions by generous readers who share our goal of informing our city.

If you own a local business that is open on Saturday mornings, and you would like us to deliver a stack of newspapers, please email editor@lewisvilletexan.com. If you would like to advertise, please email ads@lewisvilletexan.com. If you just want to kick in a few bucks to help us out with this new endeavor, we would welcome that too, and you can visit our donation page.

I don’t say it enough, but thanks for reading The Lewisville Texan Journal, and sharing it with the other residents of this city.

If you like, you can read our first issue online here.
