A rich heritage
The Union County News name has a proud heritage. Another newspaper by that name was operated by the late W.H. "Bill" Whitehead and his wife, Gladys. It served the area from July 20, 1966, until 1988. Published on Wednesdays, The Union County News was a family operation dedicated to local news. Whitehead's daughers Nancy Whitehead Lawson and Tammi Whitehead Brock, gave the Browns permission to revive the name and continue the legacy.
