Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION paigned for laws requiring cities and counties to publish their ordinances and financial reports, insisting "It is right and proper that taxpayers know where the money is going." Carl ton acquired the Beaver Press in 1919 and moved his family to that community, where both papers were then printed. While he continued to edit the News, his wife was in charge of the Beaver publication. Twice thereafter the Press was sold to owners who defaulted. The first, in 1921, was Timothy Brownhill, who was publisher for a year. The second, in 1927, was A. C. Sanders, who returned it to Carlton June 1, 1933.

In 1879 the family was visited by relatives from Illinois. The Carltons were living in a small house, the rear of which was a log cabin with dirt floor. Though snow came through cracks and covered his bed at night, this was where Karl slept. Corn stalks and buffalo chips were burned for warmth and cooking. His parents were persuaded to allow Karl to return to Illinois with the family members and there he attended school.
