The 1,000-circulation Bodega Bay Navigator, a weekly which has served the Sonoma County coast for almost 20 years, has printed its last issue and will become an Internet-only publication, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Owner, publisher and editor Jack Hack said the cost of printing paper and mailing exceeds the annual subscription price of $29.95 a year. Switching to the Internet will allow the paper to continue to be a community forum and provide local news. He told the Press Democrt that the circulation of the Navigator had been dropping in recent years, a trend he attributed to increased interest in the Internet. He said he’d rather switch rather than fight.
