Computers, Internet and changes
In April 2 Issue

We believe it was in 1984 we  contracted with Jerry Gibson to install the first computerized typesetting equipment at this newspaper. The introduction of the computer to the newspaper field has not only changed the way newspapers operate today, such computers have changed the newspaper world.

We always have to tell about the cost of these machines composed of two computers and a simple black printer. Today, these two computers and printer would cost about $1,000 total. In 1984 these comparable machines cost $19,000 and we made payments at First National Bank for many months.

Since those days, we maintained a friendship with Gibson that carried forward from the newspapers to the internet and on and on.

Gibson basically kept the computers at The Times Journal in operation for years and years  and has also demonstrated his creativity on several front page designs of this publication.

He set up the first computer system for the Kentucky Press Association as well as  many other newspapers in the state. He was a very talented individual and spent the past ten years as a resident of Russell County.

Within these most recent ten years, Gibson has spent most of his time in developing the Lake Cumberland website. This site has exploded in usage and is now recognized basically as the official web site of Lake Cumberland.

The latest reports shows millions of visitors each month log onto Lake Cumberland.  Google, the nations leading search engine, reports show over 600,000 advertising impressions per month  are viewed at the Lake Cumberland site and click on the Google placed advertisements placed throughout our pages.

Gibson also developed the Lake Cumberland forum with now some 4,000  registered members.

Gibson’s name will long be associated with the promotion of Lake Cumberland and the development of the Lake Cumberland web site.

We are very pleased to have played our part in the development of this web site and we will continue to operate the site as the official web site of this area. We are committed to continue to expand and develop LakeCumberland.com.

If you did not know, then you are certain at this point, that Jerry Gibson passed away while he slept last Tuesday. Lake Cumberland will certainly miss the man known on the website as Cumberline.
