Council Grove Republican Sale Announced.

Published continuously the past 145 years since the first issue on Aug. 24, 1872, was announced today by Craig McNeal, president of Council Grove Publishing Company, Inc. The sale to David Parker, Enid, Okla., is effective July 1.

Julie Bergman, Senior Associate with Grimes, McGovern & Associates, represented Parker in the sale.

Council Grove was listed in the late 1900’s as one of the four smallest cities in the United States, population wise, to have a daily newspaper. Today, it is the only one of the four newspapers still being published daily. Parker who has been in the printing and publishing industry for more than 40 years, said he has wanted to buy the Council Grove newspaper for a long time, since he first visited the Flint Hills decades ago, and that things finally came together earlier this year.
