We have a story over on our web site with positive news about the Heartland Publications Bankruptcy.
This is great news, positive news about a local business and employer.
The crux? Things are going just fine. The restructuring is moving forward, objections to the Disclosure Statement have been withdrawn, and we're looking at completing the reorganization in early April.
When complete, we'll have the financial backing of one of the strongest companies on the planet.

As far as the Times itself, we remain solidly profitable - actually ahead of the same period last year, indicating growth. We've been able to immediately fill vacant positions, and business is operating as normal. We continue to employ ten of your friends and neighbors and continue our strong, unwavering support of local businesses over out-of-town businesses.
We continue to add new services and features and have many other things prepared to come online this year, including the possibility of some serious expansion plans.
