So this is it for the Mount Airy Express- Germantown Courier? Finito. We are done as of the issue of February 11th. That’ll be our last and it’s on the streets now as a matter of fact. Two things happened. First of all the recession. It’s hurting everyone. It’s certainly hurting the print media badly. We suffered some erosion anyway but I think we would have weathered it. However our parent company [Journal register company]is in very bad financial condition and anything that could be cut had to be cut for their continued existence and we were one of the sacrifices…I do know the gap will be filled because it is a big gap.."
