The area, the state Cherokee Sun sold to Cherokee Herald CENTRE Beginning Jan. 1, only one newspaper will be published in Cherokee County. The Cherokee Sun has been sold to the Cherokee Publishing Co., publishers of the Cherokee County Herald. The Sun was sold by Consolidated Publishing Co., which owns The Anniston Star among other papers. VJt doesn't make a lot of economic sense to have two newspapers in a .small county," said H. Brandt Ayers, vice president of Consolidated Publishing. "We plan to continue covering Cherokee County through The Anniston Star." ' Ayers would not disclose the financial conditions of the sale, but Business Manager John Childs, who was instrumental in the negotiations for Consolidated, said the company turned a small profit. "The Sun won't be a paper (anymore)," said Paul W. Dale, editor of the Herald. "It will merge with the Herald and be made Into a shopper." A shopper is a free newspaper supposedly provided to every household in a coverage area. The Sun had been a shopper while owned by Consolidated. " ' ' ,,.,,'. "It will stay the Sun for a short time, but will be turned into the , Cherokee County Herald Plus," Dale said. "There won't be any hard news coverage in it. We'll have features on the front page, and the rest will be advertising." Dale said the new portion will be a third-class mail shopping guide. It will be sent to every household not receiving the Herald, Dale said. The deal was finalized this week, Dale said.

AP) The owner of a yacht that once belonged to Adolf Hitler wants to torpedo the , boat and turn it into a habitat for fish because he's fed up with the controversy surrounding it after seven years. "It looks like we're finally reaching the end of this ... 'Hitler-boat business' once and for all," said J.J. Nelson, who also owns A-l Marine and Commercial Wrecking in Jacksonville. Nelson came into possession of the 89-foot Ostwind boat in 1981 after it was abandoned on his property. Vice Mayor Abe Resnick, a Holocaust survivor, wants to sink the 50-year-old dilapidated boat to benefit - marine life off Miami Beach and mark next year's 50th anniversary of the Voyage of the Damned. "We're gonna do whatever Resnick wants to do with this thing," Nelson said Thursday. "We want to barge it to off of Miami Beach and . apparently the Jewish community will be happy to take it and watch it burn and sink. I wish it good riddance myself." Resnick is pushing for city financing to tow the boat out to sea and sink it. But the city commission still must approve the money. "We want to apply the same solution to the Ostwind that Hitler was trying to apply to the Jews," said Resnick, a concentration camp survivor who escaped and joined the Resistance. ' .. The sinking of the vessel would coincide with the anniversary of the 1939 voyage in which the ship St. Louis left from Hamburg, Germany, with 900 Jews aboard at the beginning of World War II. They were refused entry into Cuba and the United StatesEventually, they . returned In Kurnnp uihAre as manv as 700 of them were believed to have been killed by the Nazis. Nelson has unsuccessfully tried to sell the boat. "These Nazis in Chicago want it, but they want to make a shrine out of it."
