Nothing funny about it. A business merger? I think not. I think it's a business buyout in order to close their competition plain and simple.

This is what happens whenever a small town tries to have two newspapers that are reporting basically the same news in a folded paper that contains approx 4 pages, that is printed weekly. A county the size of Russell does not warrant two newspapers, I have seen this coming for years.

Ninja I suggest you (and every other subscriber) put your phones to use. Any and all questions should be called in to the Time Journal's office. I'm sure (insert sarcasm) the new owners would be glad to explain there business plan in detail and complete honesty.

The Times Journal will come out on Tuesday and the Russell Register will come out on Friday. Thank God we have two newspapares here in the county as there is simply too much news occuring for one small paper to cover. I love the color photos of the car wrecks on the cover of the Register every week. Its the highlight of my week when the paper comes out, that and the unchristian rantings of that Stephens lady.

Surely you jest...how is it possible to have too much news for one paper to cover??? They BOTH report the same news, As I said "surely you jest" Your post was in sarcasm, right?

The Russell Register was a better paper than The Times Journal. It has really gotten good over the past couple of years. Why did they sell it? They should close The Times Journal instead.

The Register started life as an upstart periodical by disgruntled writers. The brainchild of Wade Daffron and company. Its claim to fame then was its use of color photos as the TJ had continued its outdated tradition of all black and white print. Yes, they report the same news. But then we also have WJRS, the Wave, front porch jawin', and...oh yes...this Topix abomination. The TJ and the RR both print the news they think everyone should know...or what some don't want the rest to know. A good spin most times. You know, good ol' boy-back slappin' favors? I laugh heartily at some of the articles. Not just because I couldn't care less about a semi-prominent family's reunion or what bigshot's son got into what college or a cop holding up a empty 2-litre bottle from a yet another meth lab that got away. I laugh because the staff at both have the sheep convinced that they are here to serve the public faithfully and that they have a talent for the written word. The articles are about as flavorful as white bread. Besides, most rednecks just look at the pictures anyway because readin' is fer dummies. Git-r-done!

Ahh yes, could not agree with you more. Do not know what half of this "idiot" was "trying" to say, but I do believe that the person defeated their own purpose. What do you think? I think that I MAY know what was TRYING to be said here, but not real sure.
Whoever posted this REALLY should stay off the sauce for a little while before posting.

I certainly hope that you were referring to "Now now" post and not mine. I was referring to "Now now", I can see where perhaps it was misunderstood. Sorry. Reading the "Now now" post, one can certainly think that he/she was on the sauce too much.
