lt sharronWell, if it means better readership then I think it's a good idea. As long as it doesn’t become so big that it loses its community feeling.

lt brookeIt's not very surprising given that most of journalism is in a shrinking state on a fast decline. I think that if people are willing to pay for content, that’s where the better journalism is going to happen anyways.

I don't think merger is quite the correct word for this, I believe it is more of an acquisition(take over). I've never cared for the SCWeekly paper, so this disappoints me. I'm sure some think this is a good thing however I am sure it's not for all that are employed by the GOODTIMES, if I am correct most if not all will be fired and replaced by SC Weekly employees and the paper will be SC Weekly with the cover of the GOODTIMES. Only time will tell. And all of locals will see.
There'll be less free reading matter in the cafes, but I hope for a superior product

I'll miss getting separate local weeklies on both Wednesday and Thursday, but I'm hoping that the merged product will be superior to them both.

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
