Nothing has changed for the better financially.

I know you grow tired of reading articles like this. I'm sorry you're having to see this one now. But after scheduling payments for the month's bills, I feel compelled to let you know things remain tough financially.

The estate remains unsettled. Why? All I can say is, circumstances beyond my control. In any event, I have no access to my dad's IRA which was to provide for my future. My personal finances are quite limited.

It's a vicious cycle. While I've tried to consolidate credit care use, I can't stop using them completely because of limited cash. As a result, credit card debt remains high, eating into my thin finances.

I continue to work, trying to maintain the best online community newspaper possible. But it has expenses (IE: gas, food on nights I'm not home.) Between that and everyday expenses, it gets tough.

Because I am alone, with limited personal income, I again must come to you. If your business is advertising with me, I thank you for doing so and ask that'd you continue. If you've considered becoming an advertiser, I'd be honored to have yu. $30a month, no long term commitment.

You can purchase a special announcement for anything you'd like made public that isn't news. (IE: wishing your favorite athlete a good year, wishing someone a happy birthday.) You can use it to congratulate someone (seniors, college graduates.) Contact me for details.

Don't forget I also transfer VCR tapes to DVD for just $10 a tape. It could be one tape, three, whatever the amount. I'd love to assist you in preserving your memories.

Of course, donations are also welcomed and appreciated. Via GoFundMe-, the donation button at the top of the page, PayPal ( or Google Pay (

Again, I'm sorry for any bother caused by this. But I've been put into a situation not of my doing, one I have no idea when it'll be resolved. I'm sharing this to help you understand where things are in the hope you can help in some little way ensure my present since the future is uncertain.

Thanks for your continued readership and support.
