Two South Bay weeklies bite the dust

Silicon Valley Community Newspapers announced today that two of its weekly newspapers, West San Jose Resident and the Los Gatos Weekender, are shutting down. A note to Weekender readers said:
    While the paper has been well received by readers, and we thank you for that support, it has not gained the support of advertisers necessary for us to be able to continue producing it.

    Reluctantly, we have come to the decision that we can longer afford to continue publishing the Los Gatos Weekender. Friday's issue was the last one.
Silicon Valley Community Newspapers will continue to print its other papers including the Los Gatos Weekly Times. SVCN is owned by MediaNews Group of Denver, same owner as the Mercury News and other dailies in the Bay Area.
