The group’s website, www.savethestrib.com, goes up Monday. Members of the group will be out and about Monday, including showing up at the Twins’ home opener, to raise public awareness, collect petition signatures and give out hats and T-shirts with Star Tribune logos on them.

A spokesperson for the group said that now is not a time to look back at what caused the paper to fall into bankruptcy, but instead to look forward towards convincing people that the paper is a vital resource.

The group plans to solicit ideas from people on possible new business model or ownerships to ensure the paper’s continued existence.
