Sunland Park Newspaper Folds
The Sunland Park-Santa Teresa Journal has folded, after getting off to a good start and publishing for several months. Ruben Segura, former mayor of Sunland Park, who edited the newspaper, confirmed that the bottom line financial condition of the paper was not strong enough to justify continuation. We regret this, since the South Valley has a strong need for a voice of its own, given the lack of attention by the surrounding newspapers. We wish Segura the best in his future endeavors. One ray of good news is that the El Paso Times has made a decision to increase its coverage of Dona Ana County.
