The Carbon County News

Although the Carbon County News changed editors and managers several times, it was a successful newspaper serving the growing town of Price, which already had one other newspaper, the Eastern Utah Advocate.

From the January 1 1909 issue:

With this issue of the Carbon County News the management and control of the paper passes into new hands, Charles H. Keith assuming the entire business and mechanical direction and E. A. Phillips taking charge of the editorial department. Mr. Keith, until he came to the News something over six months ago, served the Intermountain-Republican at Salt Lake City and Mr. Phillips, a couple of week since resigned the position of Telegraph Editor on the Salt Lake Evening Telegram, in order to assist Mr. Keith in securing the lease of this newspaper. That's about all we care to say of ourselves, except that we think we know our business and we propose to attend to it fearlessly and faithfully and to win by honest effort the friendship and approval of every right minded man with whom we are thrown into contact.
