Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Ashby briefly revived the Duchesne masthead, then reconsidered and stopped the venture permanently. GARLAND Two papers successively served Garland in northern Box Elder County for over 70 years before the Times was acquired by Tremonton's Leader and the masthead was erased. Perhaps "nearly erased" would be more accurate, for the resultant publication was known for many years as the Leader-Garland Times. J. Arthur Wixom, whose nickname was "Cussin" in reaction to his sometimes fiery behavior, was the principal member of a group which launched the community's first paper, the Garland Globe, on February 10, 1906.

Arthur had been a mechanical staff member of the Brigham Bugler, the Box Elder Herald and the Ogden Standard-Examiner and a minority stockholder in the Box Elder News. The Globe and its equipment were sold in 1926 to William E. Little of the Bear River Valley Leader in Tremonton. Two years later, Roy Wallin, B. Dale Gibson and Vernald W. Johns were partners in establishing a new paper, the Garland Times. Its publisher with the greatest longevity proved to be Vernald Johns, who became its owner in 1936 and sold it in September, 1957 to A. N. (Andy) Rytting of Tremonton. Subsequently Garland, along with Tremonton, has been served by the Leader, the paper which became identified as the Leader-Garland Times. GRANTSVILLE Grantsville, which had first been known as "Twenty Wells" and then as "Willow Creek," experienced its first newspaper on January 3, 1912 with the start of a short-lived publication called the Reflex.
