"I sought out the opinion of fifteen experts. All of them agreed that it (starting a newspaper) couldn't be done. I decided that anything that certain left room for a unique answer."
"The people of Pontiac were left without a hometown paper. As the Oakland Press moved more toward regional news, they really couldn't remain a local paper, too." - C. Don Davidson - Times publisher
Davidson and his dedicated staff published a weekly newspaper for eleven years. It went defunct in 1982 due to advertising difficulties brought on by the early 1980's recession. Above is a copy of the one year anniversary of The Pontiac Times Newspaper dated Dec. 7, 1973.
