Marathon Newspaper Closes Its Doors

Staff Report

MARATHON - Another small West Texas newspaper has printed its final edition.

The Marathon News Leader folded earlier this month.

The paper was started three years ago by the publisher of the Terrell County News Leader.

The editor says the Marathon paper just wasn't profitable, especially with the downturn in the economy.

The papers in Iraan and McCamey also recently shut down.
