Fort Wayne Newspapers to Build

I admit, this surprises me. Fort Wayne Newspapers is planning a $35 million expansion downtown to house a new press. From all accounts, I thought their circulation was down and newspapers were heading toward -- what's that President Bush quote I'm searching for -- "history's unmarked grave of discarded lies."

I wonder why they don't put the $35 million towards more local reporting/reporters and less tickertape national and international news from the wires. Everybody pretty much knows the national and international stuff by the time the paper gets to the door... it's the local news that's under reported.
