OK, not all, but at least some of the big news that made its way across my keyboard for coverage in this space over the past 12 months. It’s not comprehensive, but here are some nuggets from another year’s stack of torn-off calendar pages: In January, we saw a man-bites-dog story from a hedge-fund-controlled Digital First Media newspaper in Colorado when The Longmont Times-Call actually expanded its newspaper staff.
