Evolution of a magazine

High Country News;9/15/2008, Vol. 40 Issue 17, p2
The author reflects on the evolution of the High Country News (HCN) magazine. He relates the question that puzzles the staff and board whether HCN is a newspaper or a magazine for the past decade. However, he adds that the question is unnecessary and it was certainly answered by founder Tom Bell, in which HCN would come out every two weeks rather than daily or weekly. Moreover, the author also notes several developments of the HCN, including its new design and new departments.
