Short on Enough Essays to Win a Newspaper, the Hardwick Gazette Turns to Crowdfunding

So  far, no one has wanted to buy a weekly newspaper in Vermont outright, and not enough people have submitted essays for the contest seeking a new owner.

So Hardwick Gazette editor and publisher Ross Connelly is making one final push, this time with crowdfunding.

According to a press release sent out today, Connelly is extending the contest one final time (a possibility laid out in the original rules) to Oct. 10 and launching a Kickstarter to raise $100,000.
