GREENSBORO - Former Rhino Times editor and publisher John Hammer said Friday he can't reveal who he might be working with on a new independent weekly.

The Rhinoceros Times newspaper closed in May due to financial difficulties.

Since then, Hammer said he has been trying to attract backers to start another newspaper.

Rumors have been floating around town this week that downtown developer Roy Carroll is working with Hammer on a new publication.

Carroll declined to comment about the issue Friday.

Hammer also declined to say who he may be working with.

"I have an awful lot of respect for Roy Carroll. I think he would be an excellent backer, but I can’t say who I have been talking to," he said.

He added, "I hope that there will some announcement soon."
