In this story about the Journal Register Co.'s closure of 16 weeklies in southern Connecticut, the Hartford Courant mentions that "sources said Thursday that the company has received offers" for The Bristol Press and New Britain Herald "with some interest from outside the state."
Given that the paper couldn't even get a list of the weeklies that the JRC shut down, I'm not too sure about how solid its sources are, but that is the first time I've heard of any interest from outside the state.
I'm not sure what it means, but I hope that Google wants to buy us and make all of the employees at the Press into gazillionaires.*******
