Another daily goes online only

Another small daily, the 5,500-circulation Daily Telegram in Superior, Wis., is going pretty much online only -- with just two weekly print editions.

While many community newspapers are doing a lot better than their big-city counterparts, this is another reminder that the digital wave does not stop in the large markets, and we need to help small publishers, with their very different situations from large ones, adapt as well.

David Sullivan, an editor in Philadelphia and one of the smartest observers of the industry, suggests the Superior move is not as major as it sounds.
