In Jan. 6 Issue
This week will mark the beginning of a new page in the history books of the newspapers in Russell County.
This week will mark the first issue of The Russell County News-Register. This is the combination of the Russell County News and the Russell Register. This is quite a change on it’s own, but this marks the first time in the history of the area, Russell County will have twice a week newspaper coverage.
This will give readers an all fresh newspaper on twice a week basis. Plus, no longer will readers or advertisers need to wonder which one do I need, both newspapers are under the same subscription list, and you will now receive both.
The best part will be to the benefit of advertisers, now advertisers can decide whether they prefer their advertisements released on Thursday or Saturday or both. They also have the choice of deciding whether they want to place their advertisement before subscribers or if total county coverage would be better for them.
Our new mailing system also allows us to target certain and specific areas.
The Times Journal has always been dedicated to the progress and development of Russell County. Andrew and Terry Norfleet founded this newspaper in 1949 and for several years strived to keep this newspaper among the best.
We joined them in 1969 in their quest to produce a quality newspaper for this area. This newspaper was among the very first to be produced with off-set printing means and to utilize a full printing plant.
We are proud of our years of association with the Norfleet’s and again dedicate these newspaper to the betterment of Russell County.
We have several new features planned and will be initiated as we progress with this new transformation.
We are always glad to hear your suggestions for new features or changes. Please feel free to give us a call.
We have also moved our Jamestown office from the previous location in the Masonic Lodge building to the front offices of the H. K. Cooper Law Office located between the Bank of Jamestown and the Russell County Courthouse.
Again, we appreciate you support in the past and certainly solicit your input for the future.
