    Has Ogden hired anyone off the Vindicator staff to work on the combined paper?

    Good luck to all those affected.

    I think the Vindicator has a circulation of 25,000 and I know Mahoning County has a population of 230,000. Three people to cover that a community that size.

    No surprise Wills would work for the new regime. Sad that he needs a paycheck so bad.

    I don't think Ogden is a villain here. So I don't think Willis is either.

    Youngstown is folding mostly because the newspaper industry is going to hell and the local economy sucks.

    And a zillion other reasons all with one thing in common: horrendous decisions by suits.
