A bull on local newspapers, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) will close at year's end its 10K-circulation Manassas News & Messenger, which began publishing in 1869. "We didn't see any way to turn it back into a profitable enterprise," says Terry Kroeger, who manages Berkshire's newspaper division.
