This May 29, 2019 photo shows Larry Persily, the publisher of The Skagway News, in the newspaper office in Skagway, Alaska. If you’ve ever wanted to own a small bi-weekly newspaper in Alaska but didn’t have the money, this could be your chance. The publisher of The Skagway News is willing to give the paper away to the right person, if they are willing to move to the southeast Alaska community and be a part of the community. Persily says he’s willing to help out the new owners by giving away the paper because the advertising will afford them a living wage, but not on top of a mortgage. (Molly McCammon via AP)
