Description

Recorder has been chronciling Porterville events for more than 100 years One of the reasons we're able to have such a good accounting of the last 115 years of Porterville history is, this newspaper's been around for most of it: 105 years, to be exact. The first issue of The Porterville Recorder was published on May 21, 1908. The lead story introduced readers to staffers such as Percy F. Adelsback, who was pulling double duty as managing editor and publisher, and bragged on the "up-to-the-minute" equipment (like the Linotype typesetting machine) that was being used to produce the new newspaper.
