About Us

Nestled among the historic oil fields of the 1900 boom, the Ritchie Gazette & Cairo Standard has been offering the local communities high-quality coverage since 1873. The paper is currently under the direction of Denise Duelley, part-owner and executive editor, as well as Kent Spellman and Rodney Windom, the final two owners. Our staff is small, but we continue to provide in-depth coverage of Ritchie County, from cops and courts to sports and outdoors.
