The problem with doing an internship at one business and then getting hired by their bigger rival once you graduate is that when the former goes out of business, the latter throws a party and makes you sad.
So now I'm sad.
I'm very bummed to see the Times shutting down. I interned with them from August to November of 2007, and they were really great to me, especially the editor, Ron Browning. He was real mentor material, and very understanding when the whole cancer thing went down and I had to take off for three weeks to recover from surgery. It's a shame that the paper couldn't stay afloat. I hope everyone can move on to bigger and better things, but the state of the industry right now is not good (I could tell you why, but that's a rant for another time). So here's to the Noblesville Daily Times. It was fun while it lasted.
