Here’s a preview of my column running March 6

A newspaper gem lives about a three-hour drive southwest of Colorado Springs in the small town of Saguache.

I’ve never visited the town of roughly 500, but thanks to a recent CBS Sunday Morning feature, I might find myself visiting one day.

The town is home to the Saguache Crescent, a weekly newspaper that’s been around since 1879 and might be the last of its kind. The newspaper still uses linotype to publish and was described as a “virtual time machine” by CBS reporter Barry Peterson.

Watch the video here.
