The Kaweah Commonwealth is the weekly newspaper of Three Rivers and all of Kaweah Country. Published every Friday, its coverage area mainly includes Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and the communities of Woodlake and Lemon Cove.
It takes its name from the first newspaper published in the area ca. 1890 by the Kaweah Co-operative Colony. As novel as the Kaweah Colony itself, the present-day Commonwealth merely revived the high standards of community journalism and the essential quality of what made the original Kaweah Commonwealth “a journal for those who labor and think.” Source
