Sale is a bit of a moot point. The KKK racist was keeping the paper afloat with family money as I remember, so it will be a hard slog for the new owners to dig out from that. Assuming they are any better.

Did he miss his invitation to yesterday’s social media summit? I see a real future for him on line. He’s probably out getting tweet lessons right now,

This sounds like a feel good story, but I hope the new owner knows what he is getting himself into. Publishing a small town newspaper is difficult at best. Doubly so in this online era.
