First, let’s clear up a rumor. The Optic is not going to close. That makes no sense. Since I’ve been running this newspaper, we’ve ended every year in the black, always with a positive profit margin, and I’d be willing to wager that’s been the case every year since Russell Kistler printed the first edition in 1879.
But let’s not start this farewell column there. Instead, return with me to when another esteemed newspaper did close. Oct. 18, 1991. That was the day the Gray Old Lady died.
