The magazine’s publisher, Sam Taylor, announced on May 5 that the publication had been crushed by the “economic freefall of this outbreak” and was closing after 33 years of work. Folio announced in late March that it would shift from a weekly to a monthly publication on April 1.
The paper had been a mainstay around the area since 1987.
