I see that Minnesota-based Adams Publishing Group is buying the Yellowstone Newspaper chain, which has owned the Miles City Star since 1965.

It will be interesting to see if this results in any changes at the Star.

That's a tough business to be in, but at least the Star has KATL Radio, office supplies, and commercial printing to help out.

I am wondering if they will sell off what assets there are or actually invest in it and hire a few people. If they do the latter, I'll ask for my first raise since I started doing Stardust 23 years ago.

Ouch. 23 years without a raise is a loooooong time, Amorette. But given the state of the newspaper industry, I would not be hopeful.

I guess in 25 years we can read about your raise. 🤠
