The Leon Journal Reporter

Newspaper
For over 100 years, the Lindsey family has been reporting the local happenings in our community. Back in the 1860’s, there were two newspapers in the Leon area: the Decatur County Journal and the the Leon Reporter. Back in those days, it was customary for all small towns to have two newspapers: one for the Republicans and the other for the Democrats. Corey’s great grandfather, Will Lindsey, bought into the Decatur County Journal in the 1880’s becoming a partial owner, while at the same time owned and promoted Vaudeville shows across the Midwest. Ten years later, Corey’s great grandfather became the sole owner of the Decatur County Journal, and then in 1929 he and his son, William L. Lindsey, bought the Leon Reporter and combined the two newspapers, becoming The Leon Journal-Reporter. Source
