Purchase of Conn. papers from JRC completed

The new owner of The Herald of New Britain and The Bristol Press says he has completed his purchase of the two central Connecticut newspapers from Journal Register Co.

Michael E. Schroeder also says he planned to personally deliver copies of the two newspapers to their longest subscribers Monday. Both subscribers have been receiving the papers for more than 65 years.

The price of the deal has not been disclosed. The sale includes the assets of the two newspapers' Web sites and weekly papers in Wethersfield, Newington and Rocky Hill.

Yardley, Pa.-based Journal Register had threatened to stop publishing The Herald and Press after their Jan. 16 editions if a buyer didn't come forward.
