Local paper closes after more than 170 years


GREENWICH, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Greenwich Journal & Salem Press is closing after the sudden death of one of its owners.

Craig Phalen passed away two weeks ago from a heart attack in his sleep. His family is now hoping someone will purchase the paper to keep it going.

It is among the oldest continuous-publishing newspapers in the U.S. and dates back to the 1840s.
