Benton County News

The Benton County News is a weekly newspaper published every Tuesday in Foley, MN 56329. Foley, the county seat of Benton County, was named for one of several brothers who came from Canada in the early 1880's. One of them, John Foley, helped build the town which became incorporated in 1900. Foley was named the seat of Benton County in 1902. The Benton County News was founded by Severyn D. Youso in 1932 and has been run by the family since then. Sev’s son Ron Youso is the current publisher of the newspaper, and Ron’s son Keith Youso is the editor. As a small weekly paper with a circulation of about 2,200, we hope to help maintain a sense of community, and provide a forum for news of local interest and benefit. Source
