Local business man, former Highlander publisher, Dan Alvey dies in boat accident

As growth and a volatile news cycle shaped The Highlander in the 1970s and 80s, one newspaper man stood out in his work with the Burnet Bulletin’s sister publication.

The late John Daniel (Dan) Alvey worked for The Highlander from 1972 to 1985; first in the advertising department as a salesman and ad director and eventually as publisher. He died Dec. 17, several weeks after a recreational accident in the Seattle, Washington area. He was 67.

During Alvey’s tenure at The Highlander, the local newspaper witnessed and reported locally on much of the same political and governmental strife the rest of the nation experienced during a time of great change.
