As newspapers across the country struggle to survive, the New York Times profiles the Lynn sisters of Vermont who are at the helm of several community newspapers. Polly, Christy and Elsie – all in their twenties – are the fifth generation in their family to take on the newspaper business. The publications are “surprisingly profitable” according to the article.
“I’ve grown up in the papers,” said Elsie Lynn. “But I don’t think that’s the reason I’m in it. The future is exciting for me. We have this chance and this opportunity to be pioneers and change our career and change this industry.”
