History of the Pierce County Tribune from Pierce County in 2011: 125 Years of History, p. 370

“The Pierce County Tribune, 219 South Main Ave., was not the first newspaper in the county, but It is the one that has endured since its founding by D. P. Thomas, an express manager on the Great Northern Railroad, on June 23, 1888.

Different historical accounts contain conflicting versions of the newspaper history of the county. This account will attempt to include the highlights listed in four different histories written by four different authors. All histories agree that the first newspaper in Pierce County was the Rugby Junction Advance, established May 27, 1887, by D. A. Briggs, who moved his plant from Grand Harbor northwest of Devils Lake, to Rugby. Rugby Junction was the name of the community platted in July 1886. Animosity soon sprang up between the Advance and the Tribune, and after a time, the Rugby Junction Advance ceased publication and was absorbed by its rival.

In April 1889, the first elected county commissioners designated the Tribune official county paper for three months. Later that year, the paper was bought by H. C. Hurd, who ran it until 1900 when J. W. Bingham took over. C. A. Bigelow is also mentioned in one history as a co-owner with H. C. Hurd. In the succeeding years, owners included W. J. Anderson, H. B. Stager and John Page. In 1915, the Tribune was purchased by Luther Bratton, who had published another newspaper, The Rugby Optimist, since 1904. The office of the merged newspapers was established at 219 Main Ave. South.

In 1906, Frank L. Brandt edited two German language papers, Der Staats Anzeiger, and the Deutschezeitung, which eventually were taken over and printed by Bratton. Over the years, Bratton bought out several papers in Pierce County which were printed for short periods of time, such as the Pierce County Globe published by Clarence Amundson, and the Pierce County Press owned by Hauge and Solberg. By 1936, Luther Bratton owned the sole remaining newspaper in Rugby.

Many outstanding employees have served the Tribune over the years, including Fredrikke (Frydenlund) Oksendahl who was added to the staff in 1929. She became one of the most dedicated employees the Tribune ever had. She was the linotype operator, office manager and proofreader for 45 years, retiring in 1974. Frank Hornstein was "drafted" into the newspaper world in 1940 because of the illness of his father-in-law, Luther Bratton, and devoted 42 years to the Pierce County Tribune. He once said he enjoyed it so much, he would have paid to work there. In 1947, Hornstein built a new building on the site of the old Tribune at 219 South Main.

Frank Hornstein fell ill in 1980 and passed away in 1981. In 1974, Mark Carlson, a Barton native, had started working as associate editor at the Tribune following graduation from the University of North Dakota at Grand Forks. Mark and his wife, Dianne (Armstrong) Carlson, formed Prairie Publishing and bought the newspaper in 1982. They published it with Mark serving as editor for 14 years until his death in March 1996. Mark had boundless energy and enthusiasm for Pierce County, which was contagious. He spearheaded many local improvement projects and was considered one of the area's prime boosters. Dianne Carlson sold the Tribune to Ogden Newspapers of North Dakota in the fall of 1996. Matt Mullally, the associate editor under Mark, was named editor, a position he held until September 2010 when he and his family moved to Mandan, ND.

The printing process has changed dramatically over the years. Luther Bratton told of printing the Tribune on a Washington hand press, with about 400 subscribers, in the early 1900s. Linotype, a hot-lead typesetting process, was used up until 1969, and the papers were printed in the basement of the Tribune on a letter press. In that year, the Tribune joined with five other area newspapers and formed a corporation, North Central Printing, which greatly increased the efficiency and lowered the cost of printing the papers of the members. Offset printing units were installed in the Tribune's basement by the corporation. In time, a new building was built in Rugby's Industrial Park and North Central Printing moved there in October 1978. The press units were removed from the Tribune's basement and relocated to the new building, where they were augmented with additional machines.

Today, computers have made the typesetting and layout tasks much less time-consuming, and digital cameras have made the photo developing process nearly obsolete. The Tribune started printing its newspapers in Minot in 2005.

Over the years, the newspaper has won many "General Excellence" awards in the North Dakota Newspaper Association's Better Newspaper Contest. This is the highest honor achievable in the community newspaper field in the state. Many other awards have been garnered, including Best Ad Series, Overall Design Excellence, Best Sports Section, Best Editorial Page, Front Page Design Excellence, Best Feature Reporting, Best Personal Column, and others.

Alan Rasmusson was a long-time employee of the Tribune, retiring in 1991. He started his career at the newspaper in Towner in 1937, and came to the Tribune in 1961. He was recognized by the North Dakota Newspaper Association for serving over 50 years in the printing business. Vonnie Degenstein retired in 1999 after 30 years in advertising sales and design, and Phyllis Wiggins retired in 2009 following 37 years as office manager.
In the late 1950s, the Tribune's building was expanded to the east, and the job printing division moved into the new area. The paper has printed forms, envelopes, tickets, booklets, letterheads, auction sale bills, posters, newsletters and the like, for many years. Much of the old printing equipment from the Tribune may be seen at the Prairie Village Museum in Rugby.

The current staff includes: Terri Kelly Barta, editor; Edie Wurgler, Stranford Harmel, Chris Opstedal, Melissa Anderson, Hallie Anderson and Dale Niewoehner.

 “A History of Newspapers and Their Publishers in Pierce County: 1887 – 1985”
By Catharine (Bratton) Hornstein, SHSND MSS 10843

1887:  The first newspaper published in Antelope Valley (later Pierce County) was The Rugby Advance, in May, 1887.

The editor and publisher, D. A. Briggs, moved the equipment from Grand Harbor, ND, probably moved by the St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Minnesota Railroad, which was extended from Devils Lake to Minot in 1886.

1888:  Due to hard times the Advance was absorbed by its hated rival The Pierce County Tribune, established by D. P. Thomas, its editor, in June, 1888.

1889:  In April, 1889, the first elected County Commissioners designated the Tribune as the official paper for three months.

1891: In 1891 due to poor .crops for three past years, the official paper (Pierce County Tribune) came near suspending, but it was purchased by H. C. Hurd and C. A. Bigelow, who kept it going. Mr. Hurd became the sole owner for a time and was followed by W. J. Anderson and H. B. Stager and then by John Page (1907).

1903:  In 1903, The Rugby Optimist, located at the present site of the Pierce County Tribune, and owned by A. M. Young, was purchased by L. H. Bratton, a young Spanish American war veteran. Bratton, at that time, was publishing The Knox Advocate, which he sold before moving to Rugby. He had also established papers at Pleasant Lake, Barton and Silva. His brother, Fred Bratton, assisted him in these last three papers.

1905: In 1905, the Pierce County Tribune was published by J. W. Bingham, who also printed a “Souvenir History of ND,” which supplied the previous information.

During this time The Wolford Mirror was published by Michael (Mike) Breen, who later joined L. H. Bratton after he had purchased the Pierce County Tribune in 1915.

Note: Mr. Breen was connected with various ND papers for many years after leaving the Pierce County Tribune about 1920.

1906:  In 1906, Frank L. Brandt edited the German papers Der Deutsche Zeitung and Der Staatz Anzieger, which eventually was printed by L. H. Bratton at the Pierce County Tribune.

1915: In 1915 Luther Hawkins Bratton realized a long desired ambition when he purchased The Pierce County Tribune and combined it with his Rugby Optimist, which had become the official newspaper of Pierce County, by popular vote. The papers were established at the present site on 219 South Main.

1916: Mr. Bratton took over the two German newspapers and continued to print them for the German speaking people of Pierce County.

The Tribune force at that time consisted of four people, the editor, plus his brother-in-law, Warren Ritzman (an excellent linotype operator - apprenticed at the Rugby Optimist). Ritzman came from his parents' home in Juniata Township, and later on was an operator of the Minot papers - finally returning after World War I (action in France) to finish at the Pierce County Tribune. Another locally trained man, Jay Smith, and Walter Bratton, son of the editor, who was employed there during his high school years until 1936 when he purchased the Golden Valley News, The Billings County Gazette, and printed The Badlands Cowboy (Medora) until his death in 1969 .

1929: Luther Bratton bought out several papers in Pierce County that were printed for a short time. The Pierce County Globe (1929) published by Clarence Amundson, and The Pierce County Press (1936) edited by Hauge and Solberg.

There were many fine people employed by the Pierce County Tribune - but far too many to mention them all.

But in 1929 the staff was greatly improved by the addition of a young lady who "came along with the Pierce County Globe", Fredrikke Frydenlund (later Oksendahl), was hired in 1929 and became one of the most faithful, dedicated "printers" the Tribune has ever known. A first-rate linotype operator, proofreader, office manager - she became everything but a pressman. Above all she was loved and respected by the entire community. "Freddie" retired in 1974 after 45 years of service beyond reproach. "An Era Ends for Us" was the headline of Editor Hornstein's story on her retirement.

1940: Frank Hornstein was "drafted" into the newspaper world in 1940 because of the illness of his father-in-law, L. H. Bratton. Newspaper work had been an ambition of his. Consequently, he devoted 42 years of his life to the Pierce County Tribune. He once said he enjoyed it so much he would have paid to work there.

1947: Frank built a new building on the site of the old Pierce County Tribune at 219 South Main. It is still the home of the present Pierce County Tribune and was one of the best newspaper buildings in the state.

He never aimed to publish a sophisticated emulation of a daily newspaper. He wanted and did print a typical weekly paper – never flaunting his extensive vocabulary of technical terms for his readers to figure out or to impress the public. He wrote from his heart to his readers, and they in turn knew "how sweet it was": as indicated by the communications from all parts of the country, when he was fatally stricken and died in July, 1981.

The newspaper received many awards. Two North Dakota Newspaper Association's Awards ·for General Excellence ... one was for the offset edition the first year of leaving "hot lead" for offset printing. He is the only editor to win the highly coveted "Best Personal Column" award two years in a row. The last one was dictated from his hospital bed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

Frank had 42 years of good times as well as many turbulences and financial tribulations of all kinds, but he took it all in gentlemanly stride.

He "lived by his pen - not the sword." His pictures were painted with his words, not ink, indelibly written for his readers to remember. As one judge wrote of Frank's personal column – “Up and Down the Street,” “You write too long, you rascal: But I'll bet your readers can't wait until they can read it, and that's the truth.”

Frank was posthumously elected into the ND Press Association's Hall of Fame, which is given to only the best newspaper Editors by the selective vote of fellow newspapermen. He was inducted in April 1984.

1982: With the passing of editor, publisher and owner of the Pierce County Tribune, Frank Hornstein, ended 79 years of services of two outstanding newspaper Editors - who were the voices of the Pierce County Communities from 1903 to 1982. Almost 80 years out of 100 - is quite a record and again it marked the end of an era for The Pierce County Tribune - an award winning newspaper for many years.

In January 1982, the Pierce County Tribune was sold by its owner, Catharine Bratton Hornstein.

The new owners were Mark and Dianne Carlson, Barton.

Mark had been Associate Editor since his graduation from the Journalism Department at UND, Grand Forks in 1974.

The Pierce County Tribune continued as an award winning newspaper by being awarded the General Excellence Award (1984) and in 1985 the associate editor, Larry Stammen, won the best personal column both two of the highest honors achievable.
