Printing of three newspapers to be discontinued after editor diagnosed with PTSD
NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Three local papers will no longer be published after the editor was diagnosed with PTSD, according to an announcement on Wednesday.
The printing of the New Carlisle News, the Enon Eagle and the Tippecanoe Gazette will all be discontinued, and the last print issue of them is set for December 5.
Editor Andy Grimm was shot by Clark County Deputy Jake Shaw in September 2017. The New Carlisle News posted to Facebook that the shooting has put a serious strain on the business, and since Grimm was diagnosed with PTSD, he hasn't been able to go to the office.
Grimm's father Dale, who is 69, has had more in his lap since then, but is no longer able to handle the hours-long days it takes to keep them going.
"We will continue to cover some news of local interest online, so you may continue to submit your press releases and obituaries," the post said. "We have enjoyed the 10 years that we have been in the newspaper business, and have made quite a few good friends. hank you for the support we have received."
Subscription refund requests will be honored as funds become available, according to the posts, and requests can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
