    Interesting to see where this place will go under new ownership. The previous owner had a strong commitment to video. The paper's long-time racing/outdoors/AHL reporter just retired.

    This is in the southern end of the Central Valley, a couple of hours away from LA and Fresno and 3-4 hours to Vegas. Great sports town. City also hosts the state wrestling tournaments.

    Wasn't sure if I should put this here or on the sale topic, but at least we know who's leaving.

    Wow! I wasn't ready for that this morning. Trevor has a real passion for prep sports, and it shows in his work. The paper will miss him.
