Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "West Central Tribune staff report." Often, the "West Central Tribune staff report" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

What to read next
The Kandiyohi County Fair closed Saturday after the annual week of events.
Following a few days of related events, the 37th annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run left New London on Saturday morning.
A public hearing regarding a land sale for a tiny home development and a public hearing for the rezoning of property surrounding the Uptown Willmar mall will take place during the Monday, Aug. 15, meeting of the Willmar City Council.
One hundred and twenty-five years ago, a group of men from Kandiyohi County decided the time was right to commemorate the county's pioneers. Thus, the Old Settlers Association was born. Today, the Kandiyohi County Historical Society continues that tradition by preserving and protecting the county's vast and varied history. On Aug. 20, an anniversary celebration will be held at the Kandiyohi County Fairgrounds to mark the society's important birthday.
