Video: Silverton saves its paper

SILVERTON NAMEPLATE

SOME PEOPLE CARE A LOT about their town’s newspaper. When the owner of the paper in Silverton, CO, decided to close it, the editor came up with an unusual idea: Ask the local historical society to take over the paper. And the society did, saving the rich history of the Silverton Standard & the Miner and its connection to the people it serves.

Here’s a link to a video telling you how they did it…and why the newspaper matters so much to its community:
