Recently Ally Mannette and Danielle Wisen acquired a small local community newspaper, The Grapevine, with a print readership that resides mainly in rural Western Nova Scotia. Along with the acquisition came an existing relationship with a printing house and a distribution system. Their company, Grapevine Publishing, makes mosts of its money through advertisements and it is bound by those agreements.
