Compass & Clock, a popular senior topics-based publication featured in Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties in recent years, is shifting to a subscription-based model in 2022.
Mary Coupland, owner and operator of Compass & Clock, said her organization can ship the high-glass magazines anywhere in the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii); rates are $9.99 for two issues — one in May, the other in November — through Jan. 31, and $12.99 after that.
The publication was produced in Kitsap County and distributed by Coupland across the region for the past four years, but she and her husband have moved overseas and are unable to distribute the product; hence, the mailing option.
“It might be that I’m printing a few less copies (but it) means the copies I do print are going into people’s hands,” Coupland said.
She said locals may be able to get copies at some businesses and public venues from organizations buying several copies.
Compass & Clock topics include items about housing, health care, various financial issues, nutrition and more. Recent topics include safety for dementia patient caregivers, supplements needed after age of 50, reverse mortgages, the benefits of golfing, travel tip sheets and others.
“I still think I’m providing great information for folks; we give people information in advance just be educated, (so) they have an idea of what’s down the road and they can start planning,” Coupland said.
“I just want people to enjoy life.”
The Spring/Summer 2022 edition has a pet theme and, to go along with it, a photo contest. Participants are asked to send a high-resolution photo of themselves and their pet to compass
Feb. 28; include your name, pet’s name and a small blurb. Coupland and staff will pick a photo for the cover of that edition. Other pets and pet owners will be featured inside. (Contest participants need to be subscribers.)
Compass & Clock also offers a free monthly e-newsletter.
