New paper launches in Barnstable

One newspaper is swimming against the ebbing tide in the news business — The Barnstable Enterprise launched this week, a weekly paper owned by the people who publish the Falmouth Enterprise. It joins the venerable Barnstable Patriot which was picked up by the News Corp. controlled Cape Cod Times a few years ago.

Neighbor and erstwhile Cape Cod Today blogger Paul Rifkin is the Cotuit correspondent. He interviewed me last week in my home office about Capt. Thos. Chatfield. I also see a good history piece in the inaugural issue by Prof. James Gould, Cotuit’s local historian, on a dance club/speakeasy that existed in Marston’s Mills during the Jazz Age.

Anyway, here’s a link to the kickoff.

  1. I applaud Barnstable’s effort to re’kindle’ the old fashioned printed word.

  2. Having been born and raised in MA and currently living in Denver working for an online retailer, I just LOVE reading your blog with all the tidbits about the goings-on in my home state. Always makes me so happy. Thanks!!!
