The Gazettes classified department is so scre wed up. My grandmother pays for all her buisness ads the same day she calls them in, and for the last 4 months or so, they keep sending her bills for ads she's already paid for. She calls about their mistake and it takes them days to find record of her payments.

We've tried the American Classifieds, our ads don't get nearly the response in there as we do with the Gazzette.

You Local Reps are radicals. The Gazette has covered Rick Perry, John Cornyn, Ralph Hall and many other Republicans in a fair and honest light. Sounds like Mark Grave's cronies are in here writing.
Everybody knows the Gazette's owner Walter Hussman, Jr. is a Republican through and through.

First Ralph Hall is a DEMOCRAT! What do you have against Mark Graves? I met man, he seem like pretty nice guy. So what does the paper have to do with him? Can you answer those two question cause im confused. And if you think the Ralph Hall is a republcian you need to get out of the house for awhile.

That's funny, you'd better tell Kevin George, Joshua Kowert, Gene Christensen and Kathy Seei because they all just lost the Republican primary to him in the 4th district.

Many of Graves cronies are calling for a ban against the Gazette because of coverage, saying that the Ark-Demo-Gaz and Tex-Gaz are biased against Republicans. The owner Walter E. Hussman Jr is a hard core Republican. If the news editors of the Tex-Gaz weren't, they couldn't get to far left or he'd real them in.

.
they may batch print and batch mail their invoices to the customers. it may be more time managment efficient for them to do everything all at once.
&
her same-day real-time payments may be very timely compared to the average customer response, and that might be something they are not use to seeing so efficient.
&
their accounting software may save/backup once a day and take a full business day to update the new zero balances, like banks. some businesses backup overnight and that may cause a day delay.
&
they may send an invoice copy just for the sake of her having something to file for her records. if she had to do research years from now she would perhaps appreciate an invoice copy in addition to just a check stub, something to reconcile with a bank statement
&
from an accounts receivable view, in general it might be better for them to send an invoice to guarantee payments ather than not send one at all.
&
their business has to print invoices for filing purposes and internal audits. its not just a customer issue. if they get into the habit of individual invoice print scenerioes, then years down the road when they need to look up information they will not be able to accurately internal audit their operations.

could be any number of reasons.
the local propane place sends invoices a week after i already pay them. yet every time i order new there is never any mention of past due amounts. it may likely just be a time delay on paperwork. she probably is so efficient with the payments that she is a novelty to a more standard paced billing system.

their payables/receivables software backu
there may be an inherant processing delay. if you are paying same day as ordering, then that is very efficient of you, but the office workers may have to take some time before they get the paperwork updated. pe

It's not really news. unless you consider tunnel-vision viewpoints, slanderous libel and gossip tabloids, news. It's what keeps the doh doh heads entertained ("informed") i suppose. They make their living off printing lies. Only good thing about that waste of trees & ink is the coupons and we all know coupons suck. TG is A sprinkle of geriatric flair and sugar tooth sweetness so the bs doesn't seem so bad. I read the Arkansas DemocratGazette and Dallas Morning News for a REAL newspaper experience.
