In a meandering article talking about a range of topics, George Le Masurier, publisher of The Olympian tucks in a stinger at the end. The Daily Zero will change it’s stand sales rates.
(quote from http://www.theolympian.com/opinion/story/817247.html )
The price of the daily Olympian purchased in racks and stores will increase to 75 cents effective Monday, and the Sunday paper will go to $1.75 effective April 19.
Our daily price reflects the going rate for newspapers in every region of the United States. In some cities the daily paper now costs $1. Our new Sunday price, however, is slightly under what others are charging.
The new rates will enable us to preserve news content during a difficult economic period.
I look forward to hearing from you.

It’s probably understandable that in the current newspaper climate, a rate change was in the offing. Wouldn’t a rate change for the paper merit front page attention?
What do you think?
