Newspapers combine during quarantine


During the coronavirus pandemic, public and private businesses are taking extreme measures to practice social distancing and following CDC recommendations to minimize health risks. 

Your local newspaper is doing the same.

In this unique situation, the staff of The Excelsior Springs Standard, Richmond News and Town & Country Leader is working hard to maintain a line of communication with readers while reducing risk to employees. The offices are closed to the public, but employees are checking emails, taking phone calls and forging forward with its commitment to you.
