Once again, for distribution of payment of a share of our newsmagazine sales and as an independent consumer purchaser of newspaper features, we have business-to-business relationships with or otherwise have contracted with these editorial cartoonists, who exercise their talent under CF/CNS' banner: Christopher Doyle--who focuses on news morsels spanning world, national and California state politics--Cliff Ulmer and PIKE("Portfolio"), whose caricatures of public figures in the news are easily recognizable.

Committed to developing and maintaining a diverse news-gathering organization and newspaper-feature agency, Continental Features/Continental News Service encourages writers, cartoonists and photographers, on the same business-to-business or contractual terms referenced above, to apply for sponsorship in syndication. Please write us at the address below for our current submission guidelines, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. An "online" version of these guidelines--kindly specify which one(s) relate(s) to your specific feature proposal--is also available by E-mailing CF/CNS at the E-mail address below. (No telephone calls, please.)

Note to Newspaper Editors/Publishers: You pay only tenths of a cent per subscriber for these newspaper-quality cartoon and text features—your principal cost being printing.  Also, if your newspaper is part of a newspaper chain, you'll be interested to learn that CF/CNS has introduced, feature-pricing reform, too.  For example, instead of paying the feature rate for (a newspaper of) circulation of 20,000-50,000 twice for two newspapers having circulation barely above 20,000 apiece, your group pays only once.

​​Kids' NEWSTIME—A sampler of the American children's daily newspaper that could be, first published in the early 1990's and restarted on November 4, 1995, with some interruptions afterward!   Kids, how many newspapers can you read a day? ....... This is today's final edition:

                                                                                                               VOLUME XXI ………NUMBER 120......SEPTEMBER 21, 2020

* News ...  Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy has announced that, by President Donald Trump's Executive Order directing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay Lost Wages Assistance, Alaska is receiving $62 million, to be distributed to unemployment-insurance beneficiaries and self-employed individuals suffering a loss of business from the coronavirus public-health emergency; the Governor says that individuals eligible to receive $100 or more of weekly state unemployment benefits and unemployed or partially-unemployed because of the coronavirus are due to receive an extra $300 per week under the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Program.

* Business ...  The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announces that, as part of its Military Service Members' Initiative, it has acted to protect cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy from a Colorado man who, the SEC says, tricked about 41 investors into entrusting almost $100,000 to him by claiming he was a securities professional and convincing them he could arrange weekly earnings for them of up to 10 percent, when the securities-law violator, Milton J. Dosal, Jr., used the funds he collected for personal expenses and paid past investors from the funds he collected from new investors--called a Ponzi Scheme--and Dosal, without admitting or denying the accusations, agreed to return $51,633, with interest of $3,503, and to pay a penalty totaling $51,633.

* Sports ... The National Football League (NFL) reports, as Kids' Newstime went to press, that, in Monday Night Football action, the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the New Orleans Saints by a score of 34-24, in a battle of American Football Conference against National Football Conference.

* Weather... The National Weather Service forecasts that the coldest spot in the Lower 48 States tomorrow morning is expected to be Clayton Lake, Maine, at 26 degrees Fahrenheit.  Check the map, kids!

* Other earth news... The National Earthquake Information Center (Golden, Colorado) reports that the two highest-magnitude quakes recorded in the combined region of the South American coastal zone and the Asian mainland, earlier today, were of magnitude 5.5 on the Asian mainland (14 miles from Kultuk, Irkutsk Oblast, Russia) and 4.7 in the South American coastal zone (73.3 miles from Santa Genoveva de Docordó, Chocó, Colombia).  (With an atlas or a globe of the Earth, kids, find these places as quickly as you can.)

* Today in history ... 59 years ago: September 21, 1961—Argentina's Antonio Abertondo becomes the first person to complete a round-trip swim of the English Channel and does so in 43 hours and 10 minutes.

* A Quotation worth remembering... by Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President): "Dear Sir,— * * * You say that I have been dished up to you as an antifederalist, and ask me if it be just. My opinion was never worthy enough of notice to merit citing; but since you ask it I will tell it you. I am not a Federalist, because I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all. Therefore I protest to you I am not of the party of federalists. But I am much farther from that of the Antifederalists.  I approved from the first moment, of the great mass of what is in the new constitution, the consolidation of the government, the organisation into Executive, legislative and judiciary, the subdivision of the legislative, the happy compromise of interests between the great and little states by the different manner of voting in the different houses, the voting by persons instead of states, the qualified negative on laws given to the Executive which however I should have liked better if associated with the judiciary also as in New York, and the power of taxation. I thought at first that the latter might have been limited."  (Letter of March 13, 1789 to Francis Hopkinson) 

dished up=represented; Federalists=supporters of a strong central government; Anti-federalists=supporters of a weak and limited central government and a loose union of states; merit citing=deserve mentioning; creed=belief; last degradation=worst condition; moral agent=an independent human being; qualified negative==limited veto power; organisation=organization; Executive=President.
