After 25 years of running Ellen's Bed and Breakfast in Longmont, Colo., Ellen Ranson got tired of cooking breakfast.
"So we decided to change the name to Ellen's Bed, Bath & Begone," she says.
That left her more time for sleeping in or reading the paper. But that prospect wasn't too exciting, because the local paper had been thinning out for a while, though Ranson says it used to be relevant.
"And now there's news about Frederick or Erie or Fort Collins or something," she says. All are cities she lives near, but not Longmont.
