John Ford, long-time associate editor at the Daily will take over Ball's spot at Neosho.
Graber had been at the press since August 1992, winning dozens of awards for his photography and also receiving awards for feature writing, spot news coverage, and investigative reporting.
I was lucky to have had Ron as my backup during the five and a half years I was managing editor in Carthage.
Davison had been at The Press for a year after being cut by the Joplin Globe.
As usual, newspapers, which constantly pressure politicians and businessmen to reveal everything any time news breaks, reveal little about their own inner workings. Just as when I was fired eight years ago, no mention is made of the reasons behind the departure.
The news release said:
Joining Ball as members of The Carthage Press editorial staff are Dennis Sowers, John Hacker and Cody Dyer.
It's as if Ron Graber and Michael Davison never existed.
