Justin has already said everything that needs to be said about the final days of Central District News and the rationale behind shutting the site down after so many years. This has been tough to swallow, and I’ll miss the site as a community resource as much as I’ll miss writing for it every day.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out some of our most read stories, posted yesterday. Today will be our last day of reporting, and we’re ending on a positive note: a follow up to the site’s very first story, a harrowing story that has a happy ending, nearly seven years later.
I’ve only been your editor for nine months, but I feel honored to have served the Central District’s residents. Your outpouring of support over the last week has been incredible, a true testament to the strength of this community and the enjoyment we all found in sharing the day’s news and connecting over our neighborhood’s most important stories. It’s disheartening to see it come to a close.
Thanks for reading and contributing, and hope to see you around.
