Small Indiana town's student-run newspaper shutting down

GREENTOWN, Ind. (AP) A small central Indiana town's monthly newspaper is shutting down six years after the local high school took it over and turned production over to students.

The Greentown Grapevine announced in its June edition that it was ending publication, citing rising costs and declining advertising revenue and readership for the newspaper in the 2,500-person Howard County town.

The Eastern Howard School Corp. decided to continue the newspaper in 2013 when the Greentown resident who started it in 1994 retired. Student journalists produced the newspaper with a community calendar, obituaries, sports coverage and stories ranging from local features to town council meetings.
