Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/31/2017
The associate editor of the Wisconsin State Farmer will be moving up to replace Carla Gunst, who is stepping down to focus on her family and farm after 27 years as editor. Colleen Kottke will head the editorial department of the Waupaca-based newspaper.
"We owe a debt of gratitude to Carla for devoting the best years of her life toward ensuring the Wisconsin State Farmer was the best agricultural newspaper in the state," said Scott Peterson, editor-in-chief of Journal Community Publishing Group, which owns the weekly publication. "She is one of the hardest working editors I have ever seen in my career."
It was also announced that Carol Spaeth-Bauer will take Kottke's position as associate editor.
Gunst and her husband, Willis, own Wilstar Holsteins in Pine River. The couple also has 10-year-old twins.
