After 29 years of ownership by Jim Davis, the Slatonite has a new owner. Ken Richardson, a veteran newspaper man has purchased the Slatonite from Mrs. Jim “Ko“ Davis after Jim passed away recently.
Mrs. Davis said “I’m so pleased to turn the Slatonite over to a man with such broad experience, who loves community journalism”.
Richardson has spent much of his life in the newspaper world including several stops in Texas. He owned, then eventually sold the Hot Springs Village newspaper several years ago and retired. Ken, says he missed the newspaper business so much and he is anxious to get started.“ Slaton is a great little city and I can’t wait to be a part of it” Richardson said.
