"Focus: Downeast Region" piece detailing the battle between the two weekly newsp
"Focus: Downeast Region" piece detailing the battle between the two weekly newspapers on Mount Desert Island, the "Bar Harbor Times," founded in 1913, and the "Mount Desert Islander," which debuted in 2002. The contest reflects the nationwide trend toward chain ownership of newspapers as well as resistance to that ownership. The Times is owned by Courier Publications in Rockland, itself a subsidiary of Crescent Publications of Greenville, S.C. The Islander is owned by the 150-year old Ellsworth American, the state's largest weekly paper. With comments by Bill Atkinson, group publisher of Courier Publications; Alan Baker, publisher of the Ellsworth American; Earl Brechlin, editor of the Mount Desert Islander; and Greg Fish, editor of the Bar Harbor Times.
