    I figure they’ll just have a handful of staff photogs for Quincy, Brockton, Taunton, Providence, New Bedford, Fall River, Hyannis and all their weeklies south of Boston and have one photo editor. I know at least one of the longtime photogs at the Ledger left recently... I thought it was a lay-off but maybe he just quit.

    I'm surprised it had a paper. I had never heard of it before. It's a few miles from both Providence and New Bedford and not very far from Boston.

    While looking up the paper I found the patch for the Fall River police.


    That's an inspiring motto.

    Holy Christ, that's an unfortunate patch, because nowadays the city is mostly known for being a rundown port, its high rate of crime and all of the heroin that passes through it. It is a pretty good size city for that region though - 89,000 - with some good surrounding suburbs.

    Hearing from some friends in the business that as part of the Gatehouse-Gannett merger, some of the Ohio papers currently owned by Gannett might be sold to a group that owns some smaller papers throughout southern and southeast Ohio. Guessing that would be to quell any anti-trust concerns.
