Rick Fahr resigns as publisher of Log Cabin Democrat

Posted: August 17, 2012 - 10:14am

Rick Fahr has resigned as publisher of the Log Cabin Democrat, effective immediately, to pursue other opportunities.

Fahr became publisher of the newspaper in 2010, after previously serving as editor.

"I appreciate Morris Communications for giving me the opportunity to serve as publisher,” Fahr said. “The past several years gave me the chance to check a box on my personal 'bucket list,' and I am grateful for that. The Log Cabin is poised for great things, and I am confident the staff and the next leader will build upon our recent successes."

Fahr is a native Arkansan who is a graduate of Lyon College in Batesville. He previously worked at newspapers in Russellville and Jonesboro. He also has served as a sergeant in the Arkansas Army National Guard, serving tours in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and in Iraq.

Fahr has been involved with Conway Downtown Partnership and the Arkansas Associated Press Managing Editors.

“We thank Rick for the things he accomplished at the Log Cabin Democrat, and we wish him well in the future,” said Derek May, Executive Vice President for Morris Publishing Group.

The Log Cabin Democrat is owned by Morris Publishing Group, an Augusta, Ga.-based media company.

May the Road Rise to Meet You...

I hope the new publisher is as open and opinionated as Rick.

Rick, thank you for saying what you think and for not backing down from a good ol' fashioned argument.

I wish you the best!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I hope it was nothing I said LOL
