If you’re receiving this publication, we’d like to say “Hello.” Welcome to The Kyrene Times. We will be publishing 11 issues a year and mailing each issue directly into the mailboxes of 20,000 homes in the area.

What makes our publication different? Most importantly, we focus on hyperlocal community news – this means we cover news, updates, and events going on in your backyard. We do not cover the same mind-numbing death, doom, and gloom that you find all over the radio, television, internet, and mainstream newspapers.

So, who are we? We’re EG Publishing and we publish six other community newspapers, a kids magazine, a charitable guide, two retail mailers, and coming soon, our first industry services guide. We are a family-owned business that is passionate about the success of fellow small local businesses. Our coverage means that we focus on what’s happening in your neighborhood and right down the street. This resonates with our readers who, in turn, are proud to support the businesses that advertise with us and read the news we publish. Because of this, we’re building stronger businesses, stronger connections, and stronger communities right here in the area.

Thank you for being a reader, welcome! And, if you’re a business in the area, we’d love to chat with you about how to partner to reach more local customers who live right where you do business. If you’d like to connect for a potential partnership, or just say “hello,” please email [email protected].

If you have story ideas, feedback, or info on upcoming events, please email our editor, Sondra Barr, at [email protected].

Welcome to the first official issue of The Kyrene Times.

On behalf of our entire team,
Publishers Natasha and Brian Beal
