It would be nice since I paid for the On-Line subscription of the Elkhart Truth if I could get it. It is paid for until Dec 26, 2019 and I didn't get a paper in October on the 12th or the 18th. Now I haven't received one paper in the month of November. I have called at least 3 times and have gotten no response as to why I am not receiving the On-Line paper that I paid for. I even wrote a letter to the Editor since I wasn't allowed to speak to anyone. Only got voice mails that all said they would return my call and I am still waiting for that. Today is Nov 23, 2019. This is bad business practice when you steal a person's money and I'm grieved about this. Can someone please respond and do something about this? Thank you, Carol
