It's not an official effort of the Rotary Club, but five Novato residents got together after a Rotary meeting to talk about saving the Novato Advance, which plans to shut down this week. That's according to a story by Joe Wolfcale of the Marin Independent Journal.
"We think there's enough local interest to rally around the paper and make a go of it," said Linda Blum, chief executive of a local bookkeeping service, who was one of the five who met to save the newspaper. "We're hoping people will come together and pledge money to keep this paper in our community, preserve the history and continue to maintain the thread and fiber of this community."
Blum said the Novato Advance is on the block for $235,000 without the building.
