Donors save high school's newspaper

Donations from the public will allow the Pony Express -- the student newspaper at San Marin High School -- to continue to publish, according to the Marin Independent Journal. Donors have pledged $4,000, more than four times the amount needed to keep the paper going. When it appeared the paper would have to close, the Marin IJ printed an article about the paper's troubles. "By 11 a.m. on the day after the article was published in the IJ, two people had called, pledging $500 each," said Michael Cusack, the paper's co-editor-in-chief, who is pictured above on the left with co-editor Alex Randall. "We have met and far exceeded our goals ... In fact, we're hoping to be able to expand one of those issues," Cusack said. "We're very excited about this." (Photo by Robert Tong of the IJ.)
