Chad Pelley, editor of The Overcast announced he is shutting down Newfoundland’s alternative newspaper.

“The Overcast had a great run, but the runner’s high is giving way to aching legs and visions of a simpler life. I have been dealing with daily deadlines for 1846 days in a row now, and come day 1850, I want to bask in the simple joy of a weekend off, and plotting what to do with the next five years of my life.”
