Hazleton Area Business Citizen
If you’re joining us for the first time, welcome. If this is your second visit to the Hazleton
Area Business Citizen, thank you for coming back. We hope you enjoyed HABC’s inaugural
edition and that you’ll find this month’s edition equally interesting.
While the intent of the publication remains the same—to recognize and promote
a responsible, free market in the Greater Hazleton Area—the look and feel of the journal
continues to evolve. Readers will observe subtle changes as we take on new topics, add features,
and fine-tune the design. What will not change, however, is the single, most important standard
for our content: that it will originate from the wealth of knowledge, talent, and experience of
Hazleton area business people, professionals and citizens.
Each month we interview a local business professional (or professionals) to get their
insights and perspectives on the free market. Monthly you will also see stunning art work—
paintings, photographs, and more—some by people who paint or take photos for a living and
others by people who have, for one reason or another, managed to keep their talents hidden
from the general public. Other recurring features include an insightful, informational column
addressing business topics of interest, On Business; The Review, providing commentary on
films, literature, and theater; and Lite and a Little Off, whose title speaks for it self.
The editors are very interested in submissions to The HABC. In fact we believe that as a
magazine for and about the business and professional communities of the Hazleton Area, the
HABC should include writings by those same people. The only proviso is to adhere to the
submission guidelines on the following page.
We hope you find interesting this issue of The HABC and we look forward to providing
your information and entertainment both online and in print every month of the year.
