The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for businesses. Many have suffered lost revenue and the Rushville Republican is no exception. It has forced us to rethink our operations and make some difficult decisions.

Today is the last edition of The Rushville Republican. We will merge with our sister newspaper, the Greensburg Daily News, next week. The Daily News will undertake coverage of both communities.

Current Rushville Republican readers will receive a sample edition of next Tuesday’s Daily News and a special offer to subscribe. They can also sample local, regional and state news about the COVID-19 virus and other news and sports on the paper’s website,

We hope the experience will result in your subscribing to the merged newspaper and its website.

Rushville Republican readers can choose to receive a refund for the remainder of their subscription in lieu of subscribing to the Greensburg paper. Email or or by going to

These are stressful times for you, and for us. We thank our Rushville Republican subscribers and advertisers for their support over the years, and ask that you continue to embrace our journalism in print and online at the Daily News.

If you have questions about the merger, please contact me at

We pray you stay well and stay safe.
