    Dow Jones & Co., publisher of The Wall Street Journal, said Tuesday that it is exploring strategic alternatives for its Ottaway group of community newspapers, including a possible sale.
    The decision was made just ahead of the close of News Corp.’s $5.6 billion acquisition of Dow Jones, which is expected next month.

    Ottaway operates eight daily and 15 weekly community newspapers in seven states. The newspapers include: Ashland Daily Tidings in Ashland, Ore.; Cape Cod Times in Hyannis, Mass.; Inquirer and Mirror in Nantucket, Mass.; Medford Mail Tribune in Medford, Ore.; Pocono Record in Stroudsburg, Pa.; Portsmouth Herald in Portsmouth, N.H.; The Record in Stockton, Calif.; Standard-Times in New Bedford, Mass.; and Times Herald-Record in Middletown, N.Y.

    No big surprise. But it blows for what have been some pretty good papers. Can only hope Gatehouse doesn't get 'em. Or CNHI.

    I feel for the friend of mine who was hired at an Ottaway paper that got flipped pretty quickly to CNHI. Poor bastard.
