FORT LUPTON — Publication of the Carbon Valley Farmer & Miner, a weekly newspaper of MetroWest Newspapers serving Frederick, Firestone, Dacono and the surrounding area, will cease in its current form effective Sept. 1.

The move comes as MetroWest and parent company, Landmark Community Newspapers, LLC., reconfigure their print strategy, with an emphasis on incorporating coverage of the Tri-Towns into the Fort Lupton Press, which is also owned by LCNI and operated by the MetroWest staff.

Beginning with the Sept. 3, 2014, editions, current subscribers to the Farmer & Miner will be receiving the Fort Lupton Press, which will also include coverage of the Tri-Towns and southwestern Weld County in addition to its current local news, sports and features from Fort Lupton.

The Farmer & Miner has been published under multiple names — including the Frederick Farmer and Miner and Tri-Town Farmer and Miner — going back to 1903.
