How can we serve you better?

There have been some major changes going on at the Times-Journal. We have a new owner, Patrick Graham, who is no stranger to newspapers or Northeast Alabama. Patrick was the managing editor at the Times-Journal in the late 90s. He has nearly 20 years of experience managing newspapers. One thing that will not change is our team’s dedication to provide you with the best news coverage we can. We are always looking for ways to better serve you. We have some cool ideas that we will soon begin in the coming weeks. One being a sports-related “Remember When.”

Our “Remember When” and “From the Archives” has always been something that our readers love. We had the idea to add old sports photos to the mix. Our history is so rich in DeKalb County, and we have so much to be proud of. When people come to me and ask if we can do something in the paper, it helps us grow.

So I am asking for your feedback, good or bad. Tell us what you like or don’t like about the Times-Journal, DeKalb Living or any of our promotions. Send us story ideas. I know there are so many unique people in DeKalb County that are doing great things and we want to share their story.

We take pride in helping our communities thrive by connecting everyone through our products. Your suggestions will help us produce a product that fits everyone’s needs. Please send us your ideas and feedback to or mail it to me at P.O. Box 680349, Fort Payne, AL 35967 or call my direct line 256-304-0050.

I look forward to hearing from you. Together we can move this community forward.
