New yearly subscription rates

To The Editor:

I am livid. Going through two weeks of Troy and Piqua newspapers, one small article that the new yearly subscription rate was going to be $250. My husband and I are in our 70s. I can assure you that we will not be taking the newspapers at that price.

$1,000 a year?

Are you serious?

The newspaper finally got around to larger print. Pretty bad when a person had to get out a magnifying glass to see the movie selection at the theatre. We have, for years renewed our subscriptions at the Miami County Fair.

We took advantage of the senior citizen discount. Now that has been stopped. This letter won’t be published in full because I know there are other people out there in the same financial retirement situation as we are.

To the new owners. You should be in Congress. I truly don’t mean to be nasty. It’s just that every time we turn the prices jump up.
