I enjoyed this article and would like to read more with a little less emphasis an "I". Maybe something about sports over there or the local economy.

This may be easy for you to say as you may not have been of the over 500 to 1000 mostly nonunion who were let go. The sacrifice of these employees often in their fifties are the main reason the Strib is now successful. No future obligations. Their union and management staff was barely touched in relative terms.
