1. So depressing.

Iíve been in shock ever since I heard this last night.

Whatís even worse ... I was reading the article about this in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the after-article comments were unbelievable! Lots of morons rejoicing over our paper going under and saying ďI hope this rag is next!Ē

We used to get the Sunday edition of the Vindy when I was a child ...(we usually subscribed to the Warren Tribune, but they did not publish a Sunday paper). I remember poring over the funnies first, the sports pages, the Scramble puzzle, the Letters to the Editors.... my mom and I often talked about what was on the front page. Itís so sad. First GM and now this.

2. The Vindicator is one of the sources that I check while posting threads on DU.

It's sad to see another newspaper close down, but it appears that this trend will continue across the country as the big conglomerates such as GateHouse and Media News Group provide garbage to the readers.

3. The announcement from The Vindicator:

Vindicator announces it will cease publication at end of August

Dear Vindicator Readers,

On June 25, 2019, The Vindicator turned 150 years old Ė a special birthday we have always looked forward to enjoying with our readers, advertisers, staff and carriers.

Regrettably, after four generations of Maag-Brown family ownership, The Vindicator will not have much of a birthday celebration.

Due to great financial hardships, we spent the last year searching for a buyer to continue to operate The Vindicator and preserve as many jobs as possible while maintaining the paperís voice in the community. That search has been unsuccessful. As a result, with a deep sense of sadness and tremendous dismay, we notified our employees yesterday that The Vindicator would cease publication in 60 days. We anticipate the last day you will see us will be Saturday, Aug. 31.

Our staff has worked tirelessly to make The Vindicator the most relevant and respected provider of local and regional news in our area. Our political, government, community, business, entertainment, and sports coverage is unmatched.
