The Messenger publishes a print edition twice a year, loosely following the semester schedules of students at the University of Kentucky, who cover the Midway area for the Messenger as part of courses in community journalism.
The Winter/Spring edition includes several stories from the fall class, including Jamilyn Hall's feature on the Weisenberger Mill and its 150th anniversary; Kayla Loy's story on Henry Wombles and his novel; staff reports on city elections and finances; and stories on community events such as the Midway Fall Festival, the Iron Horse marathon and chili cook-offs.
Stories from the current semester include a pair by Tiffany Broughton, on meetings of Midway Renaissance and the Midway Business Association; a a feature by Molly Elifritz on Ouita Michel and Holly Hill Inn's "Around the World in 80 Days" international menu series. A video version of that story will appear online. For a PDF of the print edition, click here.
