Catherine M. Nelson, publisher of Madison's new Core Weekly, tells reporter Judy Newman of the Wisconsin State Journal that she's not going after readers of AAN member Isthmus. But Isthmus publisher Vince O'Hern says it's obvious that the arts-and-entertainment paper backed by Capital Newspapers will try to challenge the 28-year-old weekly. In the face of competition, alt-weeklies have to be sharp and good at what they're doing, he says.
