Nicole and Greg Little recently purchased the Mariposa Gazette (California). They bought the paper from Marian and R.D. "Dan" Tucker.
Nicole Little will serve as president and publisher. Greg Little is the vice-president and will stay in his job as editor.
The Littles have worked at the newspaper for nearly two years, Nicole as office manager and Greg as editor, the paper says. They moved to Mariposa in 2016 from Rexburg, Idaho, where they were employed by the local paper.
"I am looking forward to carrying the long-standing tradition of the Gazette," Nicole said.
"We are really excited, and a little nervous, about taking over this institution," said Greg. The newspaper was founded in 1854 and is the longest continuously published weekly newspaper in the state of California, according to the paper.
The Littles have altered the paper's direction, focusing only on local news of interest.
