Russell County News-Register to be unveiled soon
In Dec. 9 Issue

Readers of The Times Journal, The Russell County News and The Russell Register will soon begin receiving their local newspapers on a new schedule and with a new format and even a new name.

Publisher David Davenport said it has taken longer than anticipated to initiate all the changes with combining the mailing lists, establishing new printing schedules and post office procedures.

Within the next couple of weeks, readers should begin receiving their newspapers on Thursday and Saturday, with the Saturday newspaper being under the new name of The Russell County News-Register. This publication will combine The Russell County News and The Russell Register.

The two newspapers, The Times Journal and The News-Register, will be sister publications and will basically work with a twice-a-week schedule.

"We look forward to bringing the readers this new format as it will allow for total coverage of our area," said Derek Aaron, the editor of both The Times Journal and the upcoming News-Register. "We hope this new format will benefit all of Russell County and work toward the betterment of our community."

The Times Journal will remain on the same schedule. It will be available on the store racks and stands on Wednesday and delivered by mail on Thursday.

The News-Register will be available at the store racks on Friday and delivered by mail on Saturday. News and contents will be different in each issue to bring you news and advertisements twice weekly.

Only one subscription will be necessary and the mailing lists will be combined. Subscribers to the Russell Register will automatically have their subscription time transferred to the new publications.

The Times Journal will remain with offices at their present location in Russell Springs and The News-Register will continue with an office in Jamestown.

Those advertisers that require countywide or targeted coverage will still be able to do so. Presently, The Russell County News is delivered to each resident in the county. Under the new process this will still be available for those advertisers wishing coverage to each and every home in the county. A special section will be a regular part of The News-Register each week.

This section will contain advertisements and announcements desiring total county-wide circulation. Regular subscribers will receive this as a part of their News-Register and non subscribers will be mailed only this section.

Advertisers may also be interested that our new mailing system will allow us to target any route or post office boxes of interest to that particular advertiser.
