Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES priority to covering projects involving Cache Valley citizens. Because it has been the area's leading printed voice, it has seldom taken a pro-or-con position on controversial matters but has attempted to present both sides without bias. Among many vital issues in which this has been demonstrated were county-wide garbage collection; the long-standing dispute about the widening of Highway 89 through Logan Canyon and installation of a wide-ranging sewage disposal system. Proponents of that improvement pointed out some raw sewage was being dumped into the Bear River. Numerous awards have been won by Herald-Journal staff members in competition conducted by the Utah-Idaho-Spokane Associated Press organization. The Color Country Spectrum The state's newest daily newspaper traces its roots to the Tri-State News Advertiser, founded in 1963 by Errol Brown in Kanab, where he published the Southern Utah News. That small circulation weekly with a conservative voice was mailed to a majority of homes in southern Utah, northern Arizona and the Nevada area surrounding Mesquite. Two years later, Myrlan Brown, the founder's brother, purchased the paper and moved it to Hurricane, changing the name to Southern Utah Free Press. More and more conservative, it became the communicating arm of the John Birch Society and for a short time was renamed Title of Liberty, When Myrlan passed away in 1969, his son, Andy, assumed ownership. In that same year Gail Stahle opened a web printing shop in Bountiful and shortly thereafter contracted with Andy Brown to print the Free Press and deliver it to southern Utah. In mid-1970 Errol Brown re-acquired the paper, purchasing it from his nephew, and renaming it the Southern Utah Press Advertiser. In 1972, Stahle bought the paper from Brown. It was, at that time, a free-circulation, 6 to 12-page weekly newspaper and advertiser mailed to 6,000 tri-state homes. 167
