DescriptionFounded in 2003 by veteran publisher Jack Turner and now headed by news editor Olwen Logan LymeLine had the humble beginnings one might expect for a site that covers two towns (Lyme and Old Lyme) with a combined population of fewer than 10000. When Turner first decided to venture into the world of online journalism paperless news had yet to catch on in small town Connecticut. “We updated daily but [traffic] was very slow. Nobody went to the Internet for their local news” says Logan.
