Local paper closes after 30+ years

A weekly newspaper that's covered the Elk Rapids community since the mid-1970s published its last edition.

The Town Meeting in Elk Rapids, published by Up North Publications Inc. and owned by Journal Register Co., is closing its doors and is among several JRC publications around the country shuttered in recent months.
