Local newspaper chain buys last independent Greene County weekly

Apr 07, 2010 10:22 pm
The Hudson-Catskill Newspaper Corp. -- the company that runs the only daily newspapers in each county (The Daily Mail and Register-Star) as well as weekly papers in Chatham, Windham, and on the mountaintop -- bought Greene County's only remaining weekly, the Greene County Local Courier, and The Ravena News-Herald, from George McHugh, today's issue of the Courier reports. The story names frequent contributor Melanie Lekocevic as new editor, and says H-CN plans to continue publishing both weeklies. The story does not say whether the purchased papers will now get web sites. Earlier this year The Greenville Press ceased publication.
