October Member of the Month
Fairview E-News was started in the summber of 2002 by Dave Altman as a way to earn a little cash. He also thought he could provide a community service by letting subscribers know who died and who won the ballgame.
Altman produced a prototype on alumni weekend and showed it to Jim Slater, who promptly wrote him a check for $48 for a year's subscription. Jim's gone now, but his wife Linda is still a subscriber, and the rate is still $48 per year.
E-News has as its mission informing readers about what is going on in Fairview, just a paragraph or two about city council, school board, traffic accidents, and, of course, high school sports.
E-News was made possible with the help of Garen and Dax Ewbank of IO2 Services and Michael and Jeremy Sacket of GammaStream Technologies. They furnished Internet Access, Web space and html training.
E-News was named Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year for 2009.
E-News is currently on hiatus while Altman fights lung cancer. He hopes to resume publication after January 1.
