BOUNTIFUL, Utah — A Bountiful-based weekly newspaper will publish its last issue early next month.

The Davis Clipper, which began publication in 1871, will publish its last issue on Friday, December 4, an article on the newspaper's website says. Publisher R. Gail Stahle informed the paper's staff of the decision to cease publication last week.

“I grew up in Bountiful, grew up basically at the Clipper, and it is heartbreaking to have to cease publication,” Stahle said in the article. “I know the importance of getting community news out to residents, and I’m very thankful for the large number of editors, writers, typesetters, production people and printers who’ve served as part of our Clipper family for multiple generations. I wish them all well as they pursue their future careers.”

The newspaper's final issue will include a look back at The Davis Clipper's history, the article said.
