For the second year running, the Pleasant Hill Times has offered a drawing for the subscribers of the newspaper to win $100.
This year, two winners were drawn and two Pleasant Hill families won, both long time subscribers.
Clark and Eugenia Stanley have been married nearly 49 years and taken the paper the entire time they’ve been married.
“I’ve lived in Pleasant Hill my whole life. When we got married, we started taking the paper right away,” said Eugenia. “We’ve been taking the paper almost 49 years. And, our parents before us took the paper. It is just part of our lives.”
Clark and Eugenia enjoy reading the articles about school and other activities the students are involved in. They have grandchildren involved in activities and they enjoy reading what is happening.
“I also enjoy reading the profile,” said Eugenia. “It’s always interesting. Sometimes even when I know the person, I find out something about them I didn’t know.”
Steven and Beth Brant have also taken the paper for many years.
“We moved to Pleasant Hill in October 1993. Because the girls were in school we started taking the paper to keep up with activities,” said Beth. “It’s a good way to see what’s going on.”
They also enjoy reading the sports section and ‘seeing what the kids are doing.’
“I also like seeing the Cass County Fair section in the summer,” said Beth. “And Steve is a bike rider and likes to keep up on info about the trails and what’s going on around town.”
The Brants are glad they moved to Pleasant Hill. “We moved here for work and fell in love with the place,” said Beth.
