Anchorage Times Folding: The newspaper announced that it is closing today after 77 years, the victim of a fierce competitive battle with the Anchorage Daily News. Times Publishing Co. said Sacramento-based McClatchy Newspapers Inc., owner of the Daily News, is acquiring the Times' press and other equipment. The Daily News said it will publish editorial-page features that had appeared in the Times. "It is always sad to see a newspaper close," McClatchy Chief Executive Erwin Potts said.
