San Saba News and Star

Diana J. Kleiner General

The San Saba News and Star was formed by the merger of the San Saba News, a weekly begun in 1873 by Melton and Millican, and the San Saba Star, a weekly started around 1902 by W. D. Cowan. Briefly known in 1966 as the San Saba News and San Saba Star, the paper was subsequently published by Howard A. Harrison and known by its present title. In the 1990s the paper was published by Donald Sloan, edited by Fred Taylor, and had a circulation of 2,596.
