In Maine, a newspaper is revived as a nonprofit

Terrific column by Bill Nemitz in the Portland Press Herald about how residents in the tiny Maine town of Harpswell revived their newspaper, the Harpswell Anchor, as a nonprofit.

“The November issue of the new-and-improved Harpswell Anchor will be its sixth,” Nemitz writes. “And by all indications, the 24-page tabloid isn’t just surviving. It’s thriving.”

    There are a lot of county weeklies too – The Free Press (literally) in Rockland for Knox County, and the Lincoln County News headquartered in Newcastle. If there hadn’t been 5 or 6 weeklies in Barnstable County, they might have made it too.
