The first issue of the Marthasville Record was published in 1898 and the newspaper is still published today. The paper was published once a week and featured stories of local interest. When the paper changed editors in 1919 the new editors made sure the readers knew that despite their inexperience in the newspaper industry the character of it was not changing. “The local paper is truly your paper, as it is the medium thru which news items of interest and information relating to yourself, your neighbors and friends are brought before you. We wish to thank you now for any assistance you will give to us toward making this paper – your paper – a success.” Following this announcement was an invitation for anyone to submit news, stories, jokes, or photographs to the paper.
