Final Saturday edition of The Courier

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Saturday was the last day you'll be able to get a Saturday edition of The Courier. 

The Saturday paper began publishing in 2004.  It's ending because of the economy.

The Courier's circulation director says there were two main options for meeting expenses.  He says they could have either cut the Saturday paper or passing a price increase onto customers.  He says dropping the Saturday paper was the best solution.

"Anytime you make any kind of change not everyone is going to agree with that, but we've had overwhelming support from our subscribers, our carriers and staff are thinking this is a good move as well," said Courier circulation director Scott Kinter.

The Courier plans to move many of the popular feature articles in the saturday paper to other days of the week.
