Read Rick Green's blog entry for The Hartford Courant. We're waiting to see what it all means, for the paper, for the community and for us.
I hope that as the optimism generated by the sale slips away into the daily grind, with the inevitable disappointments, we can keep our eyes on the prospects for a brighter future. I'm eager to see what awaits because we have a chance here to show the whole country what a newspaper can become, how we can stay relevant in a fast-changing world.
But most important, now that we have been given the opportunity to shuck the weight of a crushingly bad owner, we have the obligation to become once again the voice of Bristol and the glue that holds the community together. We can do it. I have no doubt.
