Country men; I have good news and bad news.

What is the good news ?

The good news is that our foreing debt has been settled.

What is the bad news?

We have to move out of the country in 72 hours.

This is not an exact translation, but it sounds better to me.
I am beggining to think that trsaslation is an art, that is unless one is translating scientific or legal papers, but how about translating the news?
Do we have to traslate literally '

That sounds pretty good. We would probably say, though: "I have good news and bad news."

Also: Our debts have been settled.
