The Columbia Basin Herald is a home-grown newspaper. It's true in more aspects than that it is produced locally. Some of the components that go into making the actual newsprint paper come from Columbia Basin farms.
"We're proud to use our local farmers' products to make our own," said publisher Harlan Beagley. "Our newspaper is grown locally. We like to put Grant County potatoes in our customers' hands every day."
The process to change potatoes into newspaper starts in Grant County.
