The Kingsville Record and Bishop News will not be shutting down after all.
Last month the publication announced that they were closing due to troubling financial times and an uncertain future. They intended to close today, however a transfer of ownership is allowing them to remain open. King Ranch owned the newspaper since 1953. They've transferred ownership to the Kingsville Area Industrial Development Foundation. It will be finalized this week and the paper will continue to publish on their usual twice-weekly schedule.
