Benicia High School’s newspaper, the Paw, hasn’t missed an issue in more than 60 years, said Steve Gibbs, who teaches the journalism students who serve as the publication’s staff.

That may change next year, Gibbs said after receiving what he called “a sad, sad, sad, sad bit of news.”

He said Tuesday that a department chairperson told him Benicia Unified School District will cancel the journalism class and the school’s newspaper because only 15 students have enrolled.
