RUSHVILLE — Beginning Friday, Aug. 2 the Rushville Republican will be delivered via the U.S. Postal Service.
Laura Welborn, publisher of the Rushville Republican, Greensburg Daily News and Batesville Herald-Tribune, said the move makes good business sense.
“Over the past several years, many newspapers have been challenged with the rising cost of delivering the newspaper and maintaining a carrier force. With our new partnership with local postmasters you will continue to receive same day delivery of your paper. You will also continue to receive the best in local news coverage along with advertising messages from your community businesses all at the same great value,” she said.
“While this was a hard decision to make, it makes good business sense and enables each newspaper to hold subscription rates. We would like to thank all of our carriers for their years of dedicated service,” she continued.
Some routes may be converted throughout the month as carrier routes open.
