Dude... Grow a brain, your not empressing anyone with your show of stupidity. We KNOW this already, we don't need another low life who thinks his opinion actully means something to point that out. The defination of a retard is someone who keeps repeating the same action (in this case reporting that our paper sucks.) and expecting a different result.(Yea.. Like anything will change.) Get a life, better yet get off the PC, stop waisting my tax dollars and get a JOB!(It's one of those places where you go, do something then guess what! They pay YOU!)

Before accusing someone of being stupid check your spelling STUPID.
empressing = impressing
actully = actually
defination = definition
waisting = wasting

Artesia will never be the same. They pride themselves on home grown and don't except outsiders very well. This is going to be interesting. I wonder were the Grays will move maybe Ruidoso or some place else? Wow the Grays all of them will do well with all of Profits. I wonder how Johnny Sr. would feel about this. I do hope all get to keep their jobs.

I'm proud of what Johnny and his family have built with Marbob, selling at such a huge price. Johnny and his son, Shane have been doing so well with racing, and now they will be able to concentrate on that. There are some very brilliant people working for Marbob, I'm sure if they don't stay with the new owners, they'll find gainful employment elsewhere. Marbob has changed their lives with the generous bonuses and a great place to work, so all the workers owe Johnny, his sister, and of course Johnny, Sr., who is no longer with us, and big "Thank You".

As for acceping outsiders--COG has been operating in this are for a while. Most of their local employees are from Artesia. The acquisition did come as a shock to many people,. but you cant be on top forever, thats just the way it is.
And, why does Johnny have to move? I imagine if that was his main goal, he would have done that anyway, whether he sold the business or not.

Whew!

I thought our Tejana Governor was going to have to actually GO to TX for her money. She can just send a lackey down here in one of the State planes to pick that up for her now.

I'm going to miss Johnny alot. Him and I used to get together at nights and play wrestle and do other things. I hope he comes out soon, he's been having a hard time keeping it secret for so long, but acts so ruff and tough. I love Johnny so much.
