Plugging Iowa: The Orange County Business Journal, which has positioned itself as a booster of local businesses, ran a four-page advertising supplement in this week's issue from the Iowa Department of Economic Development. The supplement promotes Iowa as a better place to do business. Business Journal Publisher Richard Reisman said he sees no conflict in accepting such advertising. "Orange County isn't going to keep its business by silencing discussion of other places to do business," he said.

The Orange County Business Journal is about to gain 500 subscribers in one swoop. Beginning March 8, the business publication will add a two-page monthly supplement written and paid for by the Orange County Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Called The Business Agenda, the supplement is intended to serve as the chamber's newsletter. The chamber will also pay to have the Business Journal delivered each week to about 500 of its members who do not already subscribe.

A year after it was purchased by Kansas City real estate magnate Larry Bridges, the Orange County Business Journal seems to have its act together on the editorial side. But things have been a little more difficult on the business side, and the weekly newspaper is now searching for a publisher to revamp the sales and marketing efforts. The paper has been without a publisher since June, when Charles Heschemeyer left to return to his roots on the editorial side of the business journal world.
