The San Diego Tribune passed quietly into history Saturday, its readers reluctantly paying their last respects at newsstands throughout the city that the afternoon daily had served for 96 years. More resigned than mournful at the death of another newspaper, readers and souvenir hunters bought final copies of the Trib and its more well-to-do sister, the Union, both of which appeared for the last time as separate publications Saturday.

SAN DIEGO - David Copley, owner and publisher of the San Diego Union-Tribune until it was sold in 2009, died Tuesday after crashing his Aston Martin near his home in La Jolla. Copley, 60, was found slumped in the front seat of his car early in the evening and rushed to Scripps Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had left a board meeting of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, saying he did not feel well. The cause of death was an apparent heart attack; Copley had received a heart transplant in 2005.

Contract talks in a labor dispute involving the San Diego Union and Tribune newspapers broke off after a strike deadline early Saturday, but labor officials say they have decided not to walk out at this time. Discussions ended after company lawyers rejected a proposal from the union in which a demand for a "closed" shop was dropped. However, The San Diego Newspaper Guild leadership said a strike still could be called at any time.

Employees of the San Diego Union and Tribune had no immediate plans to strike on Sunday evening, but a member of the San Diego Newspaper Guild said job actions would begin Tuesday that would constitute a "working strike." "People in every department will be doing everything they can that's legal to show management that they depend on our good will," said Ed Jahn, president of the guild. "Some people may refuse to use their personal cars for work-related assignments.

Beverly Hills investment firm Platinum Equity, which recently bought the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper, has emerged as a possible buyer of the Boston Globe. Platinum Equity has submitted a "preliminary bid" for the paper, according to a person with knowledge of the proposal. The firm is offering to pay $35 million for the paper and assume $59 million in pension liabilities, according to published reports. The New York Times Co. said in a regulatory filing last week that it was considering putting its New England Media Group, which includes the Globe, up for sale.

They sauntered out like schoolchildren on a fire drill. But grade school was never quite like this. Employees at the San Diego Gas & Electric Encina power plant began their morning with a "surprise" earthquake drill, complete with smoke bombs and bodies wearing what looked like leftover Halloween makeup lying around the grounds. "Help me! Help me!" yelled a faux car accident victim decked out in a red-flecked work shirt and a fake eye.

Mayor Jerry Sanders, a former police chief, presented his long-awaited plan Tuesday to stem the flow of San Diego police officers to other law enforcement agencies. The key feature is the possibility -- although not a guarantee -- of a pay hike next year. That tentative promise was met with a lack of enthusiasm by the police officers labor union. "This plan falls short of giving officers a reason to stay," Steve McMillan, vice president of the San Diego Police Officers Assn.

The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that shopping malls cannot stop protesters from urging a public boycott of the stores, even if the demonstrators are on mall property. The 4-3 decision upholds a 27-year precedent protecting free speech rights at shopping centers, even if the malls are privately owned. The case started in 1998, when the pressroom union was embroiled in a contract dispute with the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper.

In a push into the consumer market and to draw more subscribers to its lucrative computer terminals, financial news and data giant Bloomberg has agreed to acquire BusinessWeek, the 80-year-old business news magazine that has suffered steep losses. The purchase price was only about $5 million plus the assumption of liabilities, according to people familiar with the deal. It's a sign of the dismal state of the print media business and problems at BusinessWeek, which is projected to lose more than $40 million this year on revenue of about $130 million.
