News for Everyone


Millard Hoyle, Sr. was the Editor and Publisher of the Free Lance newspapers for nearly 30 years. He joined the staff in September of 1911 as Business Manager, and by 1916, he was sole owner of the paper and continued as Publisher until his death in 1941. 


The name of the newspaper is credited to Lester P. Baldwin.
