As the county seat newspaper, our goal is to give readers important news that impacts their lives in a variety of ways in print and online, whether its in our small rural communities like Jamestown and Cedarville or the growing cities like Beavercreek.
We deliver community news and information in print Tuesday through Saturday and online everyday. The mission of the staff has been to provide informative local content not found anywhere else.
The newspaper has undergone many changes over the years, including ownership, but it has remained within the communities that welcome community journalism as we strive to be relevant to daily life.
