Johns Creek Herald

Johns Creek Herald The Johns Creek Herald covers news most important to the residents of Johns Creek including school, high school sports, city council, business and more.

The Johns Creek Herald is one of the weekly newspapers in the Herald family of publications. Thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bi-monthly newspaper in Alpharetta called The ReVue, left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the newspaper. In the following years, they renamed the paper The Revue & News and increased the publishing frequency to weekly. Following the success of The Revue & News, the Appens started publishing three more weekly papers, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly relocation guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media management, design and graphics services, digital newsletter management and web- site services. However, the core business remains community news publishing.

On letting go

The visits to Norman and especially attending classes, always takes me back — way back — to that place in my mind that will forever store my time in school. It is a bittersweet place for me. I immediately miss it and want to go back.

Christina and I traveled to Norman, Oklahoma last week, possibly for the second to last time. We’ll be back in a couple of weeks for Carl’s graduation.
