Albany- An Albany weekly newspaper is asking loyal readers to pay up or say good bye. The Northwest Albany News may have printed its last edition.

In this week's paper, they're asking readers to start subscribing in order to save the paper. Editor Eddie Byrd says, nearly two dozen advertisers who refuse to pay their bills cost the paper near 25 thousand dollars. He says that's too much for the small business to handle.

"It's just a culture that's evolved in America as well as in Albany among businesses, to either slow pay or no pay just string out the small business owner for as long as they possibly can," said Byrd. 

Byrd says, the paper will decide by Tuesday whether they will print the Thursday edition or go out of business.
