Anybody who’s ever talked to Andy Ortiz for any length of time would likely find out that Andy is passionate about Newton, Kan. And after talking with Andy about Newton, Kan., a person would be either a) really glad he or she lives here; or b) wondering whether maybe a move to Newton wouldn’t be a good idea!

Andy sees Newton’s potential. But he does more than that. He works with contagious enthusiasm to help Newton become the place he envisions. Andy’s business, Axon Displays, promotes Newton businesses and activities in prominent locations around town with digital displays.

Andy will be presenting to the next meeting of MPower at the library at noon on Wednesday. Be prepared for a whirlwind trip through the history of mass communications, from Gutenberg to the digital displays of today, and a glimpse into where we’re headed in the future. We can all be a little smarter about how to market our small town in a big way!

Anyone can attend this free event; just call the library (316-283-2890) to let us know you’re coming.
