California’s Oldest Weekly Newspaper Saved From Folding

California’s oldest weekly newspaper, on the verge of folding, has been saved with an eleventh-hour bid to buy it.

The Mountain Messenger, published in Downieville, has been printing every week since 1853. Mark Twain even reported for the paper briefly.

Now publisher Don Russell, who announced the weekly would go out of business this month, has found a buyer to keep it alive.
