The Los Alamos Monitor (New Mexico) will publish its last edition on Aug. 30, the paper announced.  Landmark Community Newspapers owns the paper.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hurt a business that had been struggling, the paper said.

Monitor employees will go on producing a sister paper, The Las Vegas Optic, up to the point the Monitor building has a buyer, the paper said. Landmark Community Newspapers President Mike Abernathy said the company would consider selling the paper as well. Those with interest can call him at (502) 513-1143.

The Monitor is the sole paid circulation paper serving Los Alamos County, the paper said.
