Signal, Ledger are merged

July 18, 2001

The Baldwin City Signal is now the only newspaper in Baldwin. Last week the Baldwin Ledger was merged into the Signal.

Signal staffers are continuing to review records and other items turned over last week by the Ledger. At the head of that list is the subscription records.

"We are delivering the Signal to as many of the Ledger subscribers as we can," said Jeff Myrick, Signal publisher/editor. "We encourage any former Ledger subscribers that haven't received the Signal to give us a call.

"We will fulfill the paid subscriptions to the Ledger with corresponding subscriptions to the Signal," said Myrick. "We have tracked down as many as we could from the records, but we are still working through that process."

Several features that were in the Ledger have been incorporated into the Signal, such as the "Remember When" feature.

Other features that are being considered include the Don Coldsmith column "Horsin' Around," which is on page A-7 of this week's Signal.

"We are also encouraging Signal readers to let us know what they want," he said. "We'll definitely be using 'Remember When,' but the jury is still out on others."

Call the Signal at 594-7080 with an questions or comments.
