the owner of the newspaper lives about 600 miles away on the other side of the state, well he showed up for his "quarterly" visit.
Good News #1: he is quite happy with the books, actually quite surprised at the numbers for the dead part of the year(Jan, Feb & March)
Good News #2: we are installing an RO system here at the office instead of buying jugs, i get free RO water, YAY!
Good News #3: well this takes some explination, the plan has been that the paper will eventually be turned over to my wife as the paper is originally her grandparents. course this was always going by the word of the owner. well it seems he is going to re-do the corporation and offered Darla 2% of sales, Darla turned him down. 2% of sales on a bad month is $600(Jan, Feb, March), on a good month its over $2,000(May, August, Sept, Oct) and this is ontop of her salary. instead she said she wants shares in the company. the Boss said ok, lets do it. so they are going to figure out how best to set stuff up and it should be inplace in the not to distant future. so thats great we finally are going to have her name on the company and will slowly be turned over to her by X number of shares per month.
looks like im staying in Outer Montana for quite awhile. oh well there are worse places to be stuck.......................
