RIVER MEDIA NEWSPAPERS: ‘WE’RE RELIEVED,’ SAY STAFF

first_imgMORE THAN 80 staff at River Media Newspapers – most of them in Co Donegal – are said to be ‘relieved’ after surviving a closure scare.The company which owned the Letterkenny Post, Donegal Post, Inish Times and three other titles, was wound up last Friday.But a new company run by the same team has been set up to take the papers forward, having off-loaded massive debts, some of it to the taxpayer-owned AIB bank. “We are just relieved at this stage,” one member of staff told donegaldaily.com.“This is good news for us; we are relieved and delighted all at the same time. It means the papers can move forward without the historical debt which had been dragging us down.“It is also great news for Letterkenny because most of us are based here. It gives the papers and all of us who work for them a fresh start.”Another member of staff said tonight: “This lifts a cloud off us all. It’s good news at last.” The news comes ahead of circulation figures for all Donegal newspapers which are expected to be released early next week.It’s thought most newspapers will show significant declines in sales.Ironically the River Media Newspapers-owned Derry News was one of the few papers in the North to show an increase in sales in the past six months.RIVER MEDIA NEWSPAPERS: ‘WE’RE RELIEVED,’ SAY STAFF was last modified: September 6th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

(AP Photo/Michael Conroy) 2 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Arizona Cardinals offense seems to be running on all cylinders through the first two weeks of the NFL season.I mean, the team does lead the NFL with 79 points scored through two victories. That is 11 points more than the second-highest scoring team, the New England Patriots.The offensive side of the ball is loaded with talent and it is only going to get better with the eventual returns of Mike Iupati and Bobby Massie to the offensive line, perhaps as soon as this week.

Brown said. “We’re a dynamic group at receivers and have play-makers at running back and tight end as well, so we are a very dynamic group.”Of course, it all starts at the top with quarterback Carson Palmer.The 12-year veteran has completed 64.3% of his passes and has thrown seven touchdown passes to just one interception. Palmer is also 15-2 in his last 17 starts with the Cardinals.In other words, the multitude of dynamic play-makers that Brown is referring to can’t make plays without someone feeding them the ball.During the Cardinals 48-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Brown got fed and was able to be on the receiving end on one of Palmer’s four touchdown passes.“It was a little dump screen to the left,” Brown said on his scoring play. “They had me out there and I know Jared (Veldheer) had a great block to take me in for the touchdown.”Brown caught two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown on the day, which were the third-highest totals in the game for the Cardinals. As the fourth wide receiver on the team, Brown knows that his opportunities will be limited every game and he is focused on going out and making the most of every chance he gets.“My role can change from week to week and I just have to be ready and prepare like I am going to be a starter,” he said.
