I received the following notice from Elizabeth Hobby this week. Hopefully it clarifies any questions you have about the current state of the Morgan Connection.

Cranston, RI 02905
As you know, earlier this year our former Production Manager, Matt Silva, purchased our magazine business, The Morgan Connection. His company, Silva Graphics, LLC, officially began business operations on April 1, 2011, and it was anticipated that the first issue of the magazine under Matt’s ownership would come out on June 15, 2011.
Matt has decided not to carry on with the publication of the magazine. This has been a heartbreaking development for us, as we created this publication in 1991, and have successfully nurtured it, with your help, into a thriving, lively forum for all things Morgan.
Unfortunately, Matt’s decision not to move forward with this venture resulted in litigation between us. Fortunately, it was short-lived: all of one day in court. We were adamant that, as part of the settlement that was reached, Matt and Silva Graphics, LLC agree to reimburse all advertisers and subscribers for monies they paid to Matt and/or his company. This is expected to occur sometime within the next 90 days. If a transaction was paid by credit card, the credit card will be refunded. In addition, all of the assets of the magazine, (although not the liabilities incurred while under Matt’s ownership), will revert to Hobby Horse Enterprises, Inc.
Anyone with outstanding business or invoices with Matt or Silva Graphics, LLC may contact Matt Silva at email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please know that I regret any inconvenience caused to our loyal advertisers and to the readers of The Morgan Connection, but rest assured that once the magazine was sold to Matt, effective control was taken out of our hands. Nevertheless, during this entire time, and even now, your interests and concerns remained with us.
