The Port Arthur News debuted its brand new publication, Greater Port Arthur the Magazine, on Thursday.

The sleek 55-page magazine was direct mailed to 3,200 residents and distributed to more than 200 locations across mid and south Jefferson County, Publisher Rich Macke said.

“The Port Arthur News staff is extremely excited about our new publication Greater Port Arthur the Magazine,” Macke said. “It allows us to step away from the day to day news items that take center stage in each daily publication and write about some fantastic people, places, food, music and other items that ultimately create the entire Greater Port Arthur area.”
