The Willits News
The Willits News has been in print since 1903, and currently publishes on Wednesday and Friday each week. Once upon a time, all the small town newspapers were independently owned and operated, but in an era of rising costs and competing media, this paper is owned by the same corporation that owns the Ukiah Daily Journal, the Fort Bragg Advocate, and the Mendocino Beacon among others. But we are lucky to have a news publication serving such a small community at all, and it is the place to look for truly local news.
The window of their office is filled with old typewriters and other equipment once used by the paper, giving a sense of continuity with the past.
I’m out of town for a few days, so won’t be able to respond until I get back. Thank you for your visits.
