The Bucks County Herald Corp., publisher of The Bucks County Herald, a free weekly newspaper serving Central and Upper Bucks County, has acquired publishing rights to The Area Guide Book, a popular handbook for residents and visitors in Bucks and Hunterdon counties.

"This is a perfect fit for The Herald," said Joseph T. Wingert, publisher. "It covers the same areas and gives us an opportunity to deliver the good news of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties to an even wider audience."

Nancy Wolfe-Kennedy, who has owned and published The Area Guide Book since 1972, transferred ownership to The Bucks County Herald Corp. on Aug. 3. Her husband, Martin E. Kennedy, worked with her until his death five years ago.

"I am thrilled that The Bucks County Herald will maintain the high quality that we developed in more than three decades of publishing The Area Guide Book," Mrs. Wolfe-Kennedy said. "Thousands of people have come to rely on The Area Guide Book and I'm confident they will be pleased with the transition."

The guide is published annually and distributed in shops, offices, inns and tourist locations. The next edition will debut in late December.

"Taking on this project will be a labor of love," Bridget Wingert said. "Bucks and Hunterdon counties have strong reputations regionally and nationally and The Area Guide Book will continue to reflect that."

Founded in 2002, The Bucks County Herald, which is published in Lahaska, Pa., is an independent weekly newspaper that is distributed free through a network of 300 retail locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, plus mail subscriptions. From an initial circulation of about 5,000 four years ago, the paper's press run has grown to about 22,000. Visit for lots more about the Bucks County Herald.
