This week on WBOI Presents we offer a look back on the news and coverage from the month of August. We'll expand on some stories you heard here, and we'll offer a few stories that will be new to you.

First up, we take a look at the News-Sentinel, which is down to one remaining reporter/columnist in an online-only venture that's a shadow of the Pulitzer Prize winner's former self.
