BEND, Ore. (AP) -- A community college in Oregon is cutting funding to its student newspaper because of lack of interest from both readers and potential student staff members.

The Bulletin reports Wednesday that Central Oregon Community College spokesman Ron Paradis says most young people don't read newspapers.

The decision will effectively end publication of The Broadside.

A survey found that more than half of the school's students didn't know the newspaper existed and only 7 percent read it consistently.

The paper's staff had shrunk to 10 students from 20 writers in its heyday.

The college offers two-year associate degrees and enrolls about 16,500 students on its Bend-area campus.
