More from our new owner

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.
