From SD War College:
From the Rapid City Weekly News, we’re finding out tonight that the best weekly paper in the state (and better than several dailies for political reporting) is no more:
After three and a half years and 182 editions, The Rapid City Weekly News is shutting its doors. The final edition is being distributed this week.
The Weekly News was launched on Oct. 20, 2005, in an effort to provide more local news to the Rapid City community. That goal was accomplished, as readers scooped up the free weekly newspaper, which printed 23,000 copies each week.
