What it said in the Newspapers

The Mason Valley News,  "The Only Newspaper In The World That Gives A Damn About Yerington" began publication in 1909, but Yerington has been served by a series of papers, starting in 1874. In July of that year, the Indians are described as "peaceable and industrious" by two senators, William Stewart and John Jones, who asked that they be placed on small farms rather than reservations. However, in the same month, a local restaurateur, Mrs. Kendall, is commended for hiring "white women" in her restaurant.
