The Box Elder
The Box Elder News Journal is an amalgam of two turn-of-the-century newspapers, the Box Elder Journal and Box Elder News, which merged in 1937.
With its office located at the heart of Brigham City, the News Journal focuses on the people and places of Box Elder County as it has for over 100 years. Although it isn't printed anywhere, the News Journal motto could be informally stated as "If it doesn't happen in Box Elder County, or to someone from Box Elder County...it just doesn't happen".
That gives the News Journal the opportunity to leave state, national and international issues to daily newspapers and electronic media and use its space for pictures and copy about its own community.
It means school plays, Boy Scouts, spelling bee winners, ribbon cuttings, local business, weddings and anniversaries, city and county government and all the news closest to home are what is reported.
But it doesn't mean the news is boring, for there's a lot going on in a small town, and it's mostly good news. In fact, the News Journal is an award-winning newspaper and in 1996 won the Utah Press Association's general excellence award.
