HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN SALE EXPECTED TO CLOSE

By: Staff Reports

Deal Reached With Unionized Staffers





Having reached a key agreement with unionized staffers, Canadian
publisher David Black said last week he expects to complete his
purchase of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, even though he’s
still short about half the newsprint he needs, the newspaper
reported. Black has about 5,000 metric tons, but said he expects
to have enough by March 15, when he plans to take over the 118-

year-old daily.



Black previously agreed to buy the Star-Bulletin from
Liberty Newspapers LP, which tried to fold the paper in 1999. The
deal would preserve daily competition in Honolulu, where Gannett
Co. Inc. publishes the Honolulu Advertiser.
