The Mid-county Memo (Portland, Oregon) has put out its final edition, the monthly paper announced Jan. 3.

With rising expenses and declining income, it was evident a decision had to be made, wrote Publisher Tim Curran in a note on the mass-mailed, advertiser-supported newspaper’s website.

The Mid-county Memo was founded in May 1985 to serve the outer Northeast Portland neighborhoods of Gateway and Parkrose. It had a total circulation of 17,000 and was mailed to more than 15,500 homes, the paper said.
