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 XX ………NUMBER 69........... JUNE 10, 2019

* News … Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb announces that such foreign companies as Sweden’s Saab and Canada’s Greenleaf Foods are among the 950 foreign-owned companies that employ about 193,000 Indianans and that, by attending the U.S. Commerce Department’s SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington, D.C. today and tomorrow, he intends to explain the advantages of doing business in Indiana and to attract more foreign-owned companies to invest in the state’s advanced-manufacturing, information-technology, and aviation industries, among others; the Governor adds that the foreign-owned companies that operate in Indiana have created more private-industry jobs in the state than anywhere else in the Midwest.

* Business...The New York Stock Exchange announces that, in trading of (ownership) shares in U.S. and foreign companies, 3.083+ billion shares of stock have changed hands today, with shares of the oil-industry fracking company, Hi-Crush Inc. increasing 36.81 percent in value, more than shares of any other company. 

* Sports... The National Hockey League (NHL) reports, as Kids' Newstime  went to press, that, in the Stanley Cup Finals, Boston tied the best-of-seven-games series at 3-3 yesterday by defeating the Blues 5-1, meaning the Bruins will host  St. Louis in the deciding Game 7 on June 12.

* Weather... The National Weather Service has received reports of hail, so far today, in Arizona's Apache County, in the area of Nutrioso.  Check the map, kids!

* Other earth news...The National Earthquake Information Center (Golden, Colorado) reports that the two highest-magnitude quakes recorded in the Lower 48 States, earlier today, were of magnitude 4.0 in the eastern U.S. (4 kilometers north-northwest of Eastlake, Ohio) and 3.0 in the western U.S. (24 kilometers from Idyllwild, California).  (With an atlas or a globe of the Earth, kids, find these places as quickly as you can.)

* Today in history … 103 years ago:  June 10, 1916—The Great Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule formally begins in Mecca.

* A Quotation worth remembering ... by Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President): "With respect to the sale of our lands, that cannot begin till a considerable portion shall have been surveyed.  They cannot begin to survey till the fall of the leaf of this year, nor to sell probably till the ensuing spring. So that it will be yet a twelve-month before we shall be able to judge of the efficacy of our land office to sink our national debt.  It is made a fundamental that the proceeds shall be solely & sacredly applied as a sinking fund to discharge the capital only of the debt.  It is true that the tobaccos of Virginia go almost entirely to England. The reason is that they owe a great debt there which they are paying as fast as they can."  (Letter of October 13, 1785 to G.K. van Hogendorp)

ensuing=following; efficacy=effectiveness; sink our national debt=reduce our national debt.


Continental Features/Continental News Service

"The newspaper-feature super-channel"


Who We Are:

Continental Features/Continental News Service publishes work from a number of foreign correspondents: "Dateline: Middle East" by Norman Rubin (Israel); and "Assignment: UK/ Europe" by Steve Healey.


In addition, CF/CNS administers two newspaper-feature divisions: Champion Features and Spirit of '76 Features.  In doing so, we represent the quality features of award-winning travel columnist Ann Hattes("Travelers Checks"), retired American League pitcher David Frost ("Sports and Families"), one-time Hollywood Reporter Managing Editor Harley Lond ("OnVideo"), outdoor columnist Lee Snyder ("The Politics of Nature" and "Getting There From Here"), humor columnist Mike Krivyanski ("No Assignment Too Difficult"), Gary P. Salamone("Question Time With Public Figures"), Greg A. Anderson ("Report on Science"), Charles Hampton Savage ("News and Comment" and "Court Watch"), film critic Leslie Rigoulot ("Movie Talk"), John "Sloop" Biederman ("The News Of Our Time--In Rhyme"),  and Gary P. Salamone/Editor-in-Chief ("Continental Viewpoint").  

CF/CNS caters, in part, with our children's newspaper, on the one hand, and our cartoon line-up, on the other, to the younger generations of on-line and print newspaper readers.  Among the fine newspaper feature cartoonists who produce for our periodic newsmagazine, Continental Newstime, are Frank Hill("Milo" and "King's Court")--who has also worked on such studio property as "Dennis the Menace"(and who has written some of the Sunday gaglines)--Dick Leahy ("Great Moments"), Greg Panneitz ("Fusebox"), Brian Crowell ("J.V. All-American"), Mitch Schwenke and Alex Avedikian ("It Could Happen To Hugh!"), Mick Williams ("Mick's Nuts" and "Morons With Money"), Jack Ricketson ("Chumley" and "Haywire History"), Ellsworth E. Jackson ("Blackouts" about African-American life), David Illsley ("Kids Today," "Boomer Blogs,"  "Wet Noses," "Ribs 'n Jibs," "Otto Focus," "Speed Bump," "At the End of the Day," "Born Yesterday," and "Goin' It Alone"), Daryl Jay Frank ("Gilley & Wynn"), M.L. Zanco ("The Upsite, " "Heaven on Earth," "P.U. LITICS," and "The Upside"), David Anthony and Dan Alan ("Kwurks"),  Cliff Ulmer ("The Barlows," "Homeboy,"  "The Center" and "Leah and the Boys"),  David Ward and Bryan Picken ("Arkane Humor," "Reality Not Included," "Ripped from the Headlines" and "Making Waves"), Roger Martin ("The Outer Edge" and "Plato and the Professor"), Phil Jones ("Size and Stupidity"), Carlos Lantigua ("Pipsqueaks"),  Mike Shiell (general cartoon humor), Martin Tanksley ("Cleo"), and Ron Forkner (general cartoon humor).

Those editorial cartoonists, in turn, who exercise their talent under CF/CNS' banner number 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 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.
