Jim and Madeline Debevec have devoted their lives to publishing the "American Home"
(Ameriska Domovina) newspaper. As co-owners of the paper, the couple have chronicled
Slovenian and Cleveland style music events and family life since the 1960s. In the
bi-lingual format, readers also receive news of Slovenia and in Slovenian. Jim became
president of the newspaper in 1976, and Madeline joined him the same year. Jim and
Madeline are leaders in the community, and take an active role in organizations,
including The Frances and Jane S. Lausche Foundation.
