Cornerstone Publications owner Natalie Spencer, who was the publisher of the Lytle Leader, Medina County Times and Castroville News Bulletin died tragically in a car accident on April 2.
Her husband, Jerry Spencer, attempted to keep the newspapers open, but found that it was a larger and more expensive undertaking than he could manage. All three newspapers have now folded, leaving their cities and counties without newspapers.
Lytle is a city that resides in three counties – Atascosa County, Medina County and Bexar County. The largest part of Lytle resides in Atascosa County. The Pleasanton Express will begin covering the city of Lytle and its ISD to the best of our ability. We have begun a partnership with a former news editor from Cornerstone Publications to help us cover this city. If you have a Lytle news story, email email@example.com or call me at 830-569- 6130. We are excited to become Lytle’s news source. We got you covered.
The seniors of Lytle High School will be included in three upcoming special salutes to the Senior Class of 2020. We are planning a special graduation tab, a spring sports special tab and are dedicating six weeks of Farm & Ranch pages to senior ag students. These specials will cover the schools of Pleasanton, Jourdanton, Poteet, Charlotte, Tilden and Lytle.
If you are a business, a parent or grandparent who wants to honor the Senior Class of 2020 in the most fab Grad Tab, the Spring Spectacular Sports Tab or the oh so special Salute to Senior Ag students (see front page of Farm & Ranch for more info), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 830-569-6130. We will help you design a memorable ad that will become a keepsake for these seniors. You will not only be supporting the Seniors … you will also be helping to support community news. We need your support now more than ever so that we are able to continue to deliver the very best of local news. Your stories … always local … since 1909.
