Newspaper reaches milestone

The Williams Pioneer Review, Colusa County’s only locally-owned and operated newspaper, has reached a milestone of great importance to the community.

Last week, Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Thompson named the Pioneer Review as a newspaper of general circulation.

“It was a powerful feeling to hear the judge make the determination and announce his decision; all the years of hard work, determination, and late nights have finally paid off,” said Owner and Publisher Lloyd Green, Jr., following the Sept. 19 hearing.

Newspapers of general circulation are the only publications in California that can publish legal notices, or official advertisements such as foreclosure notices, advertisements for bids, fictitious business name statements, notices of tax and fee increases, land use and environmental decisions, government seizures, and notices of public hearings, which by law must be published in a newspaper of general circulation to be valid and effective.

“The Pioneer Review has been truly invested in serving all of Colusa County for 10 years, and we are honored to receive this legal designation,” said Green. “Because we are the only newspaper circulated and distributed from an established place of business located in Colusa County, we can offer residents, businesses, and government agencies greater ease in meeting their legal notice requirements.”

The Pioneer Review was established as a twice-monthly newspaper in 2008, and in 2010, Green, a lifelong Arbuckle resident, purchased the publication and devoted resources into creating a county-wide newspaper. Published weekly since 2014 the Colusa-based publication has far exceeded the requirements for adjudication, according to the newspaper’s attorney, Luke Steidlmayer, of Steidlmayer Law in Colusa.

To be considered a newspaper of general circulation, the court looks at several markers, including having a substantial list of paying subscribers, Steidlmayer said.

The court also considers the amount of coverage of local news, for which the Pioneer Review has excelled for some time.

“I can proudly say we are the most read newspaper in Colusa County,” Green said. “We are here to serve the community, and our ability to now publish public notices goes a step further in alerting citizens of important actions and events in their communities.”
