    The paper in Cumming, GA, (not sure if it's a daily) is also owned by Swartz-Morris Media.

    No one should be willing to do it all for 20-25k, but sadly, someone will.

    You gotta do, what you gotta do. That doesn't mean that you have to stay there.
    Besides, it will be interesting to see just how much money the company will spend before abandoning ship.

    Someone name me a newspaper (or newspaper group) that is NOT "award winning." Gees, get a certificate from the Chamber of Commerce for some fluffery and you are "award winning."
