MIDLAND PARK – The Villadom Times, a family-owned weekly newspaper serving a dozen communities in Northwest Bergen County, shut down its presses with its March 18 edition.
“It was just time for me to retire,” said Ester Vierheilig, who has operated the newspaper with her husband, Albert, for more than 25 years. “I appreciate the loyalty of my readers and the business community for all these years.”
According to the newspaper’s home page on the Internet, the free publication had a circulation of 47,461 in northwest Bergen County.
The newspaper launched in 1987.
