A group of community newspapers covering southern Dallas suburbs is printing its final issues.
The publisher said Today Newspapers is shutting down Friday because of a loss of advertising revenue.
Publisher Kim Petty told The Dallas Morning News that most of the advertisers were mom-and-pop stores that couldn't continue buying ads in a bad economy. Petty said "there is just not a lot of hope for small-town newspapers."
Fellow community paper The Oak Cliff Tribune closed in March.
