The Van Buren County Democrat is the dominant source of local news for the more than 17,000 residents of Van Buren County, Arkansas. The Democrat began publication in Clinton in 1909 under editor and publisher J.B. Fraser. The newspaper became a casualty of The Great Depression and closed in 1933. Shortly thereafter it reopened and has been going strong for almost 80 years.
