Susan Lynn, editor and publisher of the Register, asked Allen County commissioners to reconsider their designation of the Humboldt Union as the official county newspaper, a role the Register has filled for decades.
Commissioners made the switch a week ago on a year-to-year formula that would have the Register as the county’s newspaper of record in 2013.
Lynn fortified her request with figures showing it would be less expensive to have legal notices published in the Register. Also, she noted the Register’s circulation of 3,650 was six times that of the Union, that the Iola newspaper was published five days a week to the Union’s one and that the Register has an active website.
