New from Nicaragua: An 8-Page Nica Times!
The publication of the first-ever eight-page edition of The Nica Times, like the 2004 World Series victory by the Boston Red Sox, is a highly anticipated event – not quite 86 years in the making, but nevertheless a long-awaited culmination of years of effort by Nica Times Editor and Sox fan Tim Rogers with the help of a growing staff.
The newspaper, which started as the Nicaragua News Page of The Tico Times and became its own four-page publication in 2004, will now include more news as well as features such as Exploring Nicaragua travel pieces and Letters to the Editor. New Nica Times reporter Eric Sabo recently joined Rogers in the Granada office.
Readers are encouraged to send photos, letters, Community Connection contributions and Exploring destinations to Sabo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To place an advertisement, e-mail Carlos Solis in Nicaragua at email@example.com in Nicaragua or Ivonne Morua in Costa Rica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Nica Times is on sale at more than 30 points of sale in Managua, San Juan del Sur, León and Granada.
We hope that when The Nica Times reaches its 50th birthday, as The Tico Times did this year, it will reach or surpass the Tico’s current size!
