    One word of warning: Paxton. But you do get to read ACC copy from the Durham Herald-Sun!

    Noticed Paxton has multiple papers in different geographic regions. What papers are laid out and paginated in Owensboro?

    Mark, you haven't heard? Terrible chain. On a par with JRC and CNHI. I worked for a Paxton paper at one time so I know.
