Clipper Grounded

It's the end of a south shore community newspaper - at least in a format that you can light the woodstove with. This week's edition of the Chester Clipper says their last publication will be coming up on November 10th. An article on the front page says owner Colin MacDonald is assessing it's future because ad revenues have dropped to a level that the paper is no longer viable. The website associated with the Chester Clipper will continue to operate though. The paper was started almost ten years ago and they show a current circulation of just over 10,000 copies.
