On January second of this year Barbara and I were on our way to retirement after the sale of the paper. We had just published our last edition with farewell messages. The proceeds of the sale allowed us to settle some obligations and since we had no intentions of competing with the new owner, we signed a Non-Compete Agreement. The new operating company Archer County News LLC abruptly closed the doors to the weekly community paper after only four issues. Given those facts the only two options we had were to pray for a buyer to keep the weekly paper alive or settle for the loss of the Archer County News. The closure would mean a sad heartbreaking day for the entire Archer County community.
