Anchorage Daily News stops shipping to rural Alaska

SITKA, ALASKA The Anchorage Daily News will stop shipping to most Southeast communities later this month. Fairbanks, Juneau, Valdez and Prudhoe Bay will continue getting daily delivery. So will towns where the paper can be trucked. But other communities, including Sitka, who depend on air shipments will have to rely on direct-mail or online subscriptions. For one Sitka Mom, it means the end of a small business.
