A special message to our readers in Willow Park

November 13, 2010 by Randy Keck

An item is on the agenda for the Willow Park City Council's Monday, Nov. 15 agenda regarding the city's official newspaper of record. We anticipate that at that time, the city council will vote to change the city's newspaper of record from The Community News to the Weatherford Democrat. We will attempt to have the following statement read into the record during the discussion of this issue. However, it is unclear whether the statement will be allowed, so we put it here for the historical record.
