Ron Garner has been tapped to be the new circulation director for the Log Cabin Democrat, publisher Alan English announced recently.

Garner, a longtime veteran of the publishing industry, will begin his new duties this week.

Garner has been a carrier for the Log Cabin for the past 12 years, and he spent three years as a district manager with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. At the same time, he has been working as an insurance adjuster, traveling much of Arkansas.

Garner will be taking over the circulation department duties from Advertising Director Rhonda Overbey, who oversaw the transition of the circulation department as the Log Cabin moved residences to the Federal Building on 1111 Main St. Overbey will now return her full-time focus to advertising and marketing.

"The dedication and double-duty Rhonda has done this year has been incredible," English said.
