Still Waiting for News in Mt.Airy...

It's easy to make a ton of money when you work your staff into the ground and don't pay them.
From Reflections of a Newsosaur

Rumors of a rescue of the Mt. Airy paper by a local group were heard today (Jan. 13); few hard facts and no names. At the same time, six more JRC papers went down this past weekend in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, area while two dailies in Connecticut appear to have been rescued by investors.

With the Journal Register Company sinks into a cesspool of failure its ownership skillfully dug, there's still no word on the fate of the Springfield Sun, the Ambler Gazette, the Spring-Ford Reporter and a number of other nearby community newspapers that suffered the indignities foisted upon them by short-sighted management. There are lessons to be learned from this collapse - bad management as the root of JRC's fall being least of them.
