Published by the Orange County Register, the Long Beach Register makes its five-day-a-week debut Monday, Aug. 19. It's the first expansion of the Register outside of Orange County under new owners Aaron Kushner and Eric Spitz, who bought the newspaper’s parent company, Freedom Communications Inc., last year. The Long Beach Register will have a newsroom staff of 20 and compete with the established newspaper in town, the Long Beach Press-Telegram. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)
