The Wilk-Amite Record was started in 1892, and has been continuously published since. We're headquartered in Gloster, Missisippi. We honor the past. We often post interesting old articles and photos.
The newspaper's age old motto is: "In the heart of an always green country of unexcelled trees and cattle farms." And that's still true.
Our focus, though, is the present and the future. The southwestern area of Mississippi is a great place to live, to go to school, to work.
The Wilk-Amite Record supports local businesses with our mouth and our money. We are a local business and we need their support as well. Like others, the publishing industry is one of ever increasing costs. We're doing our best to hold the line on those costs.
We appreciate you, our readers and your subscriptions. We appreciate you, our advertisers. Subscriptions and advertising revenue are our bread and butter and we like bread and butter!
