Press- Democrat Dumps Humboldt
Is it something we said?
According to a story in the Business section of today's Times- Standard (not available online, it seems), the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat will no longer be delivering their paper to Humboldt County as of September 1. Seems the 400 copies they were selling wasn't enough to make it cost effective.
I should think so. I can't imagine it being worth it even if they sold twice that many papers. I've wondered for some time how they could afford to ship their papers up here.
Not to worry, though. You can still check out the headlines on their web site, as I do pretty much each day, although if you're used to the hard copy version that might not cut it. I know when my hard copy Times- Standard doesn't get delivered I'm not quite satisfied just going to the T-S web site.
After all, the [free] web site often doesn't have all the news, just like today when this story wasn't included.
Wonder how much longer the San Francisco Chronicle will be delivering up here?
