A town hall meeting over the local papers

Point Reyes Station is apparently not big enough for two newspapers, so residents have called a town meeting for tonight to see if they can get the community's two newspapers to merge. The Marin Independent Journal reports that a group of residents unsuccessfully attempted to get the Point Reyes Light and Marin Citizen to merge last year. "The proposed merger failed when the group was unable to come to an agreement with Point Reyes Light owner Robert Plotkin," the IJ said. Now, members of the group are trying a different approach: coming up with a plan to save at least one of the newspapers. The group will discuss its ideas in a town hall meeting set for 7 p.m. Monday, March 9, at the Dance Palace, the town's unofficial community center. [More]
