    " "Ohio CCW Licensee" is correct. You MUST contact the advertisers! Why? Because here in the forum "talk is cheap" and your opinion means very little to the SR--but ad revenue is their lifeblood!

However they may choose (a) not to renew the contract and/or (b) to remove the SR paper from their business, as at least one local business, Windjammer Restaurant in Marblehead, has forced the Register to remove their paper machines from the premises because of this violation of privacy. "

    And the stink made a few months before that, and a few months before that.

    I can think of at least 3 states that have recently made their info private because of the newspapers.

    This would be (at the least) newspaper number 4.
