Silver City Daily Press Ending Saturday Paper
SILVER CITY The Silver City Daily Press is discontinuing its Saturday edition, starting this week.
Publisher Tina Ely says the decision was made based on economic factors, postal rates and printing costs.
The paper will continue to publish each weekday.
Ely says the change will allow the newspaper's staff to provide more local and regional news throughout the week, with a special emphasis on the Monday and Friday editions.
She says plans call for increased sports coverage on Mondays and publishing a guide to weekend events on Fridays.
Ely says the paper also will devote more time to its online edition and breaking news.
