Rebecca Lawyer, 69, is owner and publisher of The Bourbon County Citizen, a print newspaper where the citizens of Paris get their news. Rebecca spends her time reporting, publishing and photographing, along with many other duties that are essential to the survival of the paper.
In order to publish a variety of voices, Rebecca accepts the contributions from community members such as Patricia Shifflett, 83, left, who writes spiritual columns for the paper.
After stories are written and sent, Rebecca checks the format for any errors as she and the staff prepare to send next week's layout to Georgetown News-Graphic to be printed for publication.
The community paper has a press run of 3,400 copies. It's printed every Wednesday for distribution early Thursday morning.
Rebecca makes her way to the printing press to take photographs and check the progress of the paper along with production manager Josh Guthrie.

Bourbon County has had a community newspaper since 1807. Rebecca and her staff hope to keep the lights on and continue to do good community journalism well into the future.
