About Franklin County Free Press

Franklin County Free Press

Like a Phoenix, Franklin County Free Press obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessors. For the past 20 years Franklin County has been losing its local news coverage and the corporation of local news takes its toll.

“The phoenix dies and then is born again when it approaches its five-hundredth year”

The Great Sages

In this environment Franklin County Free Press was born on January 7th 2019.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to revitalize the local news of Franklin County. We will continuously provide an objective and honest reporting for the people of this community. We are committed to up-to-date information on news and events in our county.

What you will not find in this newspaper are standardized AP/UPI news articles, which can be found in any other newspaper or Web site across the globe. We do use press releases that other newspapers have used but we will never use wire news.
