Lonoke Democrat

All three Lonoke County newspapers have seen the old and the new. The Democrat dates back to the 1870s, and the Independent is over 100 years old! The Cabot Herald was founded in 1923. In 1955, Cone and Betty Magie founded the Cabot Star. The Magies purchased the Herald in 1956 and consolidated the two papers as the Cabot Star-Herald. [1]
