The Wood River Sunbeam Print

The Wood River Sunbeam has been in existence for over 117 years.
The Sunbeam covers the communities and rural area surrounding Wood River and Alda. We report on activities around the towns including social, church and ag related news. Our coverage of the schools include all the activities of the elementary and secondary students, in the classroom and the playing field. Our motto of "Our Town, Our People" shows in each weekly issue with pictures and stories of local people and activities. The news and advertising deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Monday.
