I like to include news from all the different areas around Caddo because, like today’s, they often contain lots of names and even obituaries. I was thinking the other day that I need to start copying a few of Caddo’s news columns from other papers. For many years Caddo had a variety of reporters who reported news items for the Blue County News, Durant Daily Democrat, and others. And I know I haven’t been good about reporting school and sports news this year. Projects for the New Year!
The Caddo Herald
April 26, 1912
I am proud to announce that the Caddo Herald editor has made arrangements for the Pleasant Hill community to have a reporter. This will meet the approval of every citizen in our community I am sure. We are glad to have the space in The Herald to print the news from our community. Of course we are all industrious and like for other people to know what we are doing.
Ike Rudisill purchased a fine young span of horses from W. T. Barker last Friday. Mr. Barker bought the horses early in the winter and as far as I can learn made a good profit on them.
Will Sanders went to Durant last Tuesday. It is supposed he enjoyed the trip, as he came back with a long smile on his face.
S. P. Freeman is through with planting corn. He says his plan this year will be diversification- more corn and less cotton.
