And that would be a tragedy.
    Its a tragedy for any newspaper to fold. With readership going elsewhere for news, it is happening everywhere.

    This story makes Gateway a goat. Not everyone is together on the downsizing page. Someone offering a job and later recinding the job. With a dying source of news, these things happen.

    Al Neuharth is not around to stop this mess. An Eureka native, and USD alum who started out with a salmon colored SoDak Sports. I remember having a cherry coke and reading SoDak sports at Rays Drugstore on Main Street in Brookings. Not to be confused with Rays Corner.} A big deal for a farm kid in 1952. Sadly Al went broke and moved on to big newspaper ownership of Gannett. USA Today has a huge story saying the merger might not happen. My iPhone and links and me do not work.

    Good luck to the Argus staff on future buyouts. Gatehouse is a horrible company.

    The e-version of the Argus works well for me. I enjoyed getting caught up on Zimm’s Recent stories on Jacks football that were “subscriber only”.

    One thing I wish they could figure out is: how to keep me logged on across my devices. This board can do it, why they can't confounds me.

Part of it is forcing me to use passwords daily so I don't forget them.

    Sorry for the tangent.
    Thanks for more info,appreciate it.

Web sites like GoJacks, others , don't do this. It seems to me that they wouldn't want to aggravate their subscribers by not letting them remain logged on. I've looked for the place where you can state you wish to remain logged on if that's the reason for this happening, but can't find anything on their web site.

    Thereís a reason that SDSU still has a dedicated (to a point) beat writer and Garry got let go. If we want to put pressure on for more articles, the way to go is to show a large need for it. The folks down south went the opposite way and pouted. They stopped buying and reading the Argus for their sports and guess what, itís gotten worse for them. I subscribe for all the articles on Jacks sports and so hopefully our fan base shows the Argus itís large enough that they need to give more SDSU content to keep up with demand. In this day and age newspapers need to give the readers what they want to read to bring in money, we need to show them as a fan base that SDSU is a big ticket to their success. Just my $.02
