Article about journalists trying to revive the dead horse known as local journalism. No one reads paper anymore. Local news should be hyper focused blogs coordinated around local events. Since the primary need for local news is to know what is going on near you events seem like a natural focus. The problem is that event sites are usually not geographically focused. Mostly they are full of big city events as well. Local aggregation of various sources makes sense which is what blogging is anyway.
