Community Newspapers; More Important Than Ever

By Amy Johns


As we celebrate National Newspaper Week it’s interesting to think about what would happen in our community if we didn’t have a hometown newspaper. Most importantly there would be no one committed to the truth. No one would be attending council or commissioner’s meetings. City leaders would be accountable to no one. There would be no oversight of legal documents, no accountability of local government spending. It would be somewhat of a free- for-all.

There is no one entity or organization committed to telling the stories about what is happening in Marshall County except for The Madill Record. This newspaper is the keeper of our history. The weekly pages are full of news and information you can use. Local businesses choose to invite customers into their stores by advertising in the local newspaper. We enjoy over 6,000 readers each week; why wouldn’t you want your business to partner with us?
