Owners shut down local weekly newspaper
LITTLE VALLEY -- The County Chronicle, a weekly newspaper that failed to publish this week, is apparently out of business, according to a source who asked not to be identified.
The newspaper, which began publishing in August 1992, has been shut down by owners Lloyd and Rebecca Long of Salamanca. The staff consisted of an office manager, advertising layout person and a reporter, who learned about the decision last weekend. The Longs could not be reached to comment.
The offices are at 125 Main St.
The Longs, who operate as Pirschlo, were the target of a recent search warrant, at their home on Front Avenue, Salamanca. Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched for information on alleged illegal tax-free sales of gasoline and cigarettes at two Salamanca convenience stores.
