Long Beach Register, New Orleans Advocate debut

The Long Beach (Calif.) Register debuted Monday. “We’re not going to let a competitor come into our city and take it,” Los Angeles News Group's Michael A. Anastasi told the Associated Press. His company produces the (Long Beach) Press-Telegram.

In other newspaper war news, The (Baton Rouge) Advocate launched its redesigned New Orleans edition Sunday. It will compete with The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune, which does not publish a traditional home-delivered edition on Monday but does produce a "street" edition. To the front pages!
