Nichi Bei Times to Close; Nonprofit to Carry Torch

The home of our Two Japanee Bruddahs column, the Nichi Bei Times, Northern California’s oldest Japanese American newspaper, announced today that it will close on Sept. 30 after 63 years of business.

I have joined a group of Nichi Bei Times staff and community members (incl. Kenji Taguma and Kerwin Berk) in starting the Nichi Bei Foundation, a separate nonprofit that hopes to keep the newspaper going.
