Hi Richard and Federation Family,

This happens to me in Kansas too,but I don’t even get the obituaries any
more. I get some news and sports. They fixed it once,but it is now
happening again. Kansas wasn’t going to be able to come up with the money
to continue with newsline services,but at the last minute,I understand that
someone came through for them,but maybe the money they money that came in
for Kansas ran out. That wouldn’t happen in Iowa. So there must be a
problem with Newsline.
