In my little town, the Harold-Patriot came out on Tuesday and the Leader came out on Thursday, both published at the same company.

I figure the Harold-Patriot was a merger before my time, and the Leader a later aquisition - so that was three papers for a little town of 5000.

What was the name of your local fish wrap?

When I was in High school the paper was the Toganoxie Mirror.


Pre high school I lived in KC so the paper was the Times/Star. I had a paper route and I had to deliver the paper two times a day. It sucked. Not only did it suck just to deliver the paper twice a day but my route was between Troost and Paseo. I'm white, bad combination. I had a gun pulled on me and I was robbed (for one dollar) while delivering the paper.

We had the Journal Express - which was a combination, I guess - at some point before my time.

Des Moines had the Register for AM delivery and Tribune for evenings. At some point while I was a paper boy, they did away with the twice daily format and combined.

The Hallsville Top (weekly paper)

My first professional writing credits were with this paper (started out as a sports reporter, wound up being sports editor before I left for college). Used to help the publisher/editor set type on the old linotype machine he printed the paper on.

I learned a hell of a lot more about the newspaper business working for Don than I did from any of my college professors.

Growing up in Leavenworth it was the Leavenworth Times. Honestly I don't remember the names of the papers in the 3 other towns I lived in before I moved to Williamsport. Now it's the Williamsport Sun-Gazette. We get the Grit as an insert on Sundays. We even have a big building downtown that has "GRIT" really big. I still read the Lawrence Journal-World a couple days a weeks.

Funny story (to me anyway); My grandparents lived in Ashland, a little town in Nebraska. The paper was called the Ashland Gazette. My grandpa always called it "The Daily Astonisher"

We used to have a newspaper called the Marion Sentinel but that was replaced by the Marion Times. Its only a weekly paper, so the daily would be the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
