Lee in 1870 to coverage of wars since the Civil War through modern times to man’s first moonwalk some 100 years later, and even more recently the landing on Mars, Miss-Lou readers found the stories in their Natchez paper. The Natchez Democrat was started in 1865 by Capt. James W. Lambert and Paul A. Botto. NatchezDemocrat.com and its staff have garnered numerous awards for writing, photography, layout and design, including Best of Boone honors for two years in a row.

Aberdeen News is a newspaper in Aberdeen, South Dakota, published by American News. The Aberdeen News was founded as a weekly in 1885 by C.W. Starling and Paul Ware. Soon after, the Ordway Tribune, which had a power press, was moved to Aberdeen and combined with the News to produce a daily. In 1920, a competitor, the Aberdeen American, bought the News, and both were later purchased by the Aberdeen Journal. The Ridder family purchased the papers in 1928. The newspaper became the American News in 2004. In June 2006, The American News merged with McClatchy and was subsequently purchased by Schurz Communications. Aberdeen News has a circulation of 15,000 daily and 16,600 on Sunday, serving Dakota Midland, which is primarily agricultural area. Hundreds of family-owned farms and small communities dot the Northern Plains. Aberdeen is the largest community within a 150-mile radius.
