I have noticed that ever since the Journal was sold to the Sun Times Media Holding Group that the paper has seem to lessen the news and increase ads. Realizing that ads pay for the paper and I do look at the store ads, but I also like to read news. The ads are usually available in the stores and you only need to ask for them.

My subscription rate for my 6 day paper has continued to climb, and I became upset when my neighbor told me she was paying $11 a month where as I pay over $200 for the same paper.

I enjoy the paper but when someone receives the same paper for $80.00 a year less, I wonder if the Journal have lost so many customers that they give these deals to secretly make payroll and operations cost.

When Mr Small was alive we had a paper.

Just was told by a fellow Journal Subscriber that he got his bill and it was $240.00. When I told him I was paying over $200 and my subscription was do for renewal in late July, I doubted that I could renew at that price. However, if I could get it at my neighbor price of $121 a year, I would. The subscriber who just got his bill could not believe that another customer was paying $11 a month, while the Journal wanted $20 a month from him.$9.00 less a month or %45 cheaper.
I really would like to know the prices that others are paying to see if gouging is going on.

5 paper routes contracts are dissolved by a carrier. Their pay was only in neighborhood of maybe $60.00, they hire a carrier to do the routes for over $40.00 a day. If true this carrier is pulling in over $480.00 or 8 times the normal rate. How can they afford to do this.

Considering 5 days ago, a 3 year old little girl whom has brain bleeding & more then half her body is burned is more important then the stupid shit they post.. I guess maybe they are going out of business or to them she just ain't important enough to write a article about.

I don't live in Kkee or get the Journal, but my guess about the baby story is, they are just too cheap to devote the resources to cover all the police news in the area, which might mean a) monitoring scanner traffic in real time, b) periodically calling each agency to find out what's been happening, but probably mostly c), visiting stations in person once or twice a week and going through their reports.
The reporter picks out whatever he and his editors consider newsworthy. If short on staff, this process may not get done completely or quickly enough for the several towns the Journal covers.
