Why would anybody buy a newspaper when you can read it online for free? If they want to save the industry why don't they charge people to read the newspaper online? I'd pay a small online fee to the RMN if it meant saving the paper. I happen to know some of the reporters personally and let me tell you if it wasn't for them watching what our local government is doing behind closed doors the people of Colorado would have no idea what is really going on. Scary IMO.
