pages. In content, The Rossville Reporter was a typical small-town weekly, containing some national news but dominated by local news of Rossville and outlying towns and hamlets.
Navarre edited the paper until February 28, 1953, when he announced that he had sold it to Bill and Betty J. Murray. In 1958 the name was changed to The Shawnee County Reporter, and in 1966 the Murrays merged their business with a Topeka firm owned by Bert C. Carlysle. From that time on the paper was published at Topeka. In 1969, Carlysle merged the Reporter with The Pictorial-Times to form The Pictorial-Times and The Shawnee County Reporter.
