The Independent's Last Issue

The Independent ceases publication with Friday's issue.

The 36-year-old newspaper serving Columbia and Rensselaer counties fell victim to the bad economy that has impacted the industry, the region and the nation.

And in case that link won't be around for much longer:

The Business Review - The Independent newspaper closing
The paper, which was founded in 1973, has been owned for the past eight years by Journal Register Co. (OTC: JRCO). The Trenton, N.J. company, which also owns The Record in Troy, N.Y. and The Saratogian in Saratoga Springs, has been struggling financially. It reported a loss of $8.7 million for the third quarter.
