MINNPOST: The Twin Cities’ community newspapers are struggling to survive

Those who live in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul are undoubtedly familiar with the Villager, the largest and one of the oldest community newspapers in the Twin Cities. For those who aren’t, here’s the scoop: Every two weeks, the Villager delivers reliable, in-depth coverage of local issues, things the ever-shrinking St. Paul Pioneer Press lacks the manpower and space to deliver. Best of all, the Villager is free, with 60,000 copies distributed on doorsteps or at coffee shops and businesses all over town.
