About Franklin County Free Press

Franklin County Free Press

Mission Statement

Our mission is to revitalize the local news of Franklin County. We will continuously provide 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 website across the globe. We do use press releases that other newspapers have used, and partner with other regional online papers to share news stories important to our readers.
