The Union gang! Hemig, Ackerman, Juvinall and “skinny dipping”?

10399999_10152958974643342_4426702992706018519_nHere’s a new photo posted on The Union’s Facebook page of current publisher Jim Hemig and ex-publisher Jeff Ackerman (now with parent Swift in Roseburg, Ore.) at a recent gathering for retiring photographer John Hart. Jim and Jeff are good friends and longtime “Swifties.”

Then Todd Juvinall, a former supervisor, CABPRO founder and good friend of Jeff, chimes in (three times no less) on The Union’s Facebook page about one of The Union’s other former publishers. He claims:

“Todd Juvinall Where is Margaret …? She skinny dipped at Starry Nights! LOL!

“Todd Juvinall Hey did the cops know? LOL!

“Todd Juvinall Where is Ackerman’s hair? LOL!”

Small-town newspapers are a hoot! Must be a lot of fun! Like a postcard out of the ’50s. Where’s HR?
