Death of CHH and the Border Wars

Rumors are circulating that the Chapel Hill Herald will cease production. There was a post by Jon Hamm on the John Locke Foundation's website which outed the decision. No confirmation from the Herald or it's publisher yet, but if true this changes the complexion of local news coverage.

Virtually over night the brand new "Carrboro Citizen" will become a major player, going head to do with the bi-weekly "Chapel Hill News." Each side of the border will have it's own paper, and it's own voice. Could be fun.
