LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A longtime monthly newspaper that covered the Highlands area of Louisville is stopping the presses after 7 years.

The Highlander Neighborhood Monthly announced Tuesday via e-mail to media outlets that their current issue will be their last.

The Highlander’s editor and publisher, Mary Jean Kirtley, says that it can no longer continue because of a lack of ad revenue and other resources.

Kirtley says the paper covered everything from lost cats to controversies and was found in coffee shops and stores across the area.

She adds that a book showcasing “The Best of the Highlander” will be available next month.
