The paper has been a long time coming, according to publisher Sloane Citron, who said he launched his first newspaper as a second-grader. Although he also serves as publisher for Gentry magazine, he said the two publications are not related.
"The newspaper is to be about all those things that make towns click. We will present the minutia of our community, all the things that are a part of the day-to-day life of our towns, from chamber news to store openings to lost cats," he said.
Part of Mr. Citron's strategy involves recruiting residents as deputy reporters through the paper's website (thedailywamp.com) to round out the current staff of five. Don't plan on dropping by the office, though; the publisher said their offices are "virtual."
He said approximately 5,000 copies will be distributed at 50 points throughout the Peninsula. Page counts, he estimated, would run around 12 to 24 per issue.
