Tri-County News
Tri-County News
 
 
Times have changed, but Crockett County's newspaper, which dates back to 1873, is still a family-owned and operated business.  The company got a strong start from its founder, Leslie Sims, and continued to grow in the passing years.  The newspaper still serves as the central news source for the people in its community.     

    In 1909, at the age of seventeen, Leslie Sims already had three years of printing experience.  He founded a newspaper in Kentucky along with his father and his brother, Paul.
    But he soon decided to try his luck in Crockett County TN, where he had spent much of his childhood.  He founded The Tri-County News in Friendship in 1912 when only twenty years old.
    With the success of the Tri-County News, he moved to the county, Alamo, and began publishing The Crockett Times in 1933.
    Sims purchased The Crockett County Sentinel, founded in 1873, in 1942. He published all three papers from Alamo, even though each one went to a different community - Bells, Alamo or Friendship.
