Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Tucked inside this edition of The Brewton Standard, you will find the inaugural edition of brewton: the magazine.

As our newest project, this publication is filled with all the things that showcase what makes our city so great.

“As a newcomer to Brewton, I knew in a very short amount of time that this was a community that had much to offer,” said Publisher Stephanie Nelson. “The staff here at the paper realized very quickly that Brewton needed a printed platform to showcase what it does best.

“Our answer – brewton: the magazine,” she said.

Printed quarterly, the magazine will feature photos of special events, both public and private, and stories on interesting people and fascinating places.

“And we want you – our readers – to be a part of it,” Nelson said. “Photo submissions and leads on fabulous stories are always welcome.”

Inside this edition, one will find scenes from the Wild at Heart and Jernigan Foundation’s Relay for Life masquerade ball, the Jeff-Davis Community College Foundation’s Death by Chocolate event and more. Further in the pages, blind artist Ricky Trione tells his inspirational and motivational story to a group of Brewton students and Brewton’s famous blueberries make their “spiritual debut.”

“At brewton magazine, we hope you like what we did,” Nelson said. “We sure had fun doing it for you.”

Copies of brewton: the magazine can also be found at area fine retailers, the Chamber of Commerce and at The Brewton Standard office on St. Nicholas Avenue.
