“Papers across the country and around here — Auburn, Carson City — have gone from dailies to twice-weeklies,” The Union publisher writes in his weekly column. “Starting next week, the daily in Sturgis, Michigan, is dropping Mondays, which isn’t outside the options for The Union. A thousand weeklies have closed in the past dozen years, including the Bonanza in Incline Village last winter.” … I can understand that. The Union’s Monday edition — from the news pages to the op-ed page — is its weakest one all week. And as for the Tahoe market, I wish The Union’s ownership would deliver the New York Times to homes on the West Shore up there, just as it does in a contractual arrangement in our neighborhood in Nevada City. Of course, that will never happen — but you can always wish.
