TSN presents combined print editions

Like so many other businesses, Times-Sentinel Newspapers is making near-daily adjustments to a new economic reality brought on by the novel coronavirus outbreak and the resulting economic shutdown.
Starting this week, we have made the decision to temporarily combine the print editions of The Times-Sentinel/Haysville Sun-Times with the Conway Springs Star & Argonia Argosy. This combined edition will continue while we work through the current situation.
There are two reasons behind this decision. First, this move saves money. We have seen a sharp decline in advertising revenue over the past two weeks. That ad money is what keeps newspapers going, and unfortunately, we expect to see advertising revenue fall as other businesses do what they can to keep their doors open. That does not even take into consideration the other businesses that are completely closed as local ordinances and now a statewide executive order shut the doors of all operations deemed non-essential.
Secondly, the combined edition means the advertisers that are able to continue supporting us are now reaching a larger base of readers without any added cost. We all need to do what we can to support the local businesses that form the backbones of our communities.
We are all in this together.
We will continue working to bring you the same amount of community news that you are accustomed to, just in a slightly different style of packaging. In addition, we are providing print and online coverage related to the coronavirus and how it is impacting life on a local level. Important updates between print editions will be shared on our website at www.tsnews.com and on our Facebook pages for The Times-Sentinel, the Haysville Sun-Times and the Star-Argosy.
Please support your local businesses that remain open. And if you can, please support your community newspapers as well. We can help you with local business advertising. As a reader, feel free to renew your subscription early, or give a gift subscription to someone close to you. Call 316-540-0500.
