The Citizen News, one of two weekly newspapers in Edgefield County, is following the trend of many newspapers today and shutting its doors.

“It’s a matter of The Citizen News posting losses and just hanging on for the last two years,” said Laura McKenzie, who is publisher of the five-newspaper Barnwell Group owned by the Morris Publishing Group, a division of Morris Communications Company of Augusta.

The final edition will be printed on April 18.
