Jimplecute Responds to COVID-19 Pandemic

Jimplecute News Editor

JEFFERSON – The Jimplecute announced Friday that it was responding to the Centers for Disease Control’s guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“We are following the same publishing schedule as in 2019.  We announced on March 5 that the March 19 edition of the newspaper will publish as an e-Edition only because of Spring Break.  It will be free to all readers on the Jimplecute website, Jimplecute1848.com.

“Having said that, readers have noticed this year that we are no longer constrained to publishing only on Thursdays.  As news events happen in Marion County, we are covering those events and publishing stories as soon as they are ready.

“March 26 is planned to be both print and e-Edition. Subscribers will continue to have access to both print and e-Editions every week,” Jimplecute Publisher Mica Wilhite said Sunday.

“However, we have reduced the number of newsstands that will be stocked across the county and our physical office will be closed for the next 30-60 days.  All business operations are functional. Subscriptions, legal notices, and advertisements can all be placed by calling or emailing us,” added Wilhite.

  1. If all schools are closed to help keep children safe and protected, why are people still gathering at the soft ball field in Kellyville for ball practice. Just curious.
