Our local paper

It appears Gray is back to having only one real "local" newspaper - The Gray News.

After trumpeting her glories for the past six years, Elizabeth Prata and the consortium that owned The Monument recently sold out to a chain of weeklies based in Westbrook. That chain quickly quelched Prata's rhetoric.

The Monument is now hardly more than a shopper, showing none of the sharp, biting editorials and journalism for which Prata became infamous. And it appears The Monument now prefers to print articles and fluff pieces about surrounding towns.

Thankfully, The Gray News continues on right here in Gray, supporting our town and our school. And The Gray News is produced by people who still live right here in Gray.

Monuments may crumble, but The Gray News carries on!
