    A nice area to live, not far from the Pennsylvania and Jersey borders.

    Also remember, though, that there is a for-sale sign on Ottaway's community papers.

    About an hour north of NYC. Very pretty, outdoorsy, area. Traditionally been a good paper for its size. Lots of change there in the last year, though. New top editor. Lots of turnover. And, of course, the Rupert-isn't-big-on-82K-circ.-local-papers issue.

    Rupert isn't too big on American papers in general, save the Post and the Journal.

    That corner of New York state takes a serious upward turn in the 10 miles from my birthplace of Newburgh to Middletown. Thankfully.

    Yeah but then you get north of Middletown and it's squeal like a pig territory for miles and miles.

    Terry is now working for Ottaway on a magazine called Orange that debuts later this month.
