Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
STATEMENT ON NEWSPAPER MICROFILMING CHANGE BEGINNING APRIL 2010: McClatchy Newspapers bought the Beaufort Gazette and the Island Packet in 1990. Beginning in the fall of 2006, the Packet and the Gazette have been printed in the production center located at the intersection of Buck Island Road and US 278 in Bluffton. The two newspapers began to ever more increasingly be the same item. The fiction of the separateness of the newspapers could no longer be denied once Jim Cato, editor of the Beaufort Gazette for 28 years, retired on September 12, 2008. The next day, Sara Johnson Borton, publisher of the Island Packet since 1993, assumed duties as publisher of the Beaufort Gazette. Certainly since January 2009, staff has observed that the major difference between the Beaufort Gazette and the Island Packet newspapers has been the front page of the respective newspaper titles, with an occasional difference in the front sheet of the “Lowcountry Life” section (usually Section C). The interior pages of the separate titles contain the same content and have the same format. Beaufort County government has been directly impacted by the Great Recession. One way to cut costs without destroying the historical record and cutting service to customers is to cease microfilming the Beaufort Gazette and the Island Packet newspapers as separate titles. Henceforth, Beaufort County Library and the Beaufort County Records Management Department will microfilm the front page of the Beaufort Gazette, followed by the image of the front page of the Island Packet, and thence microfilm the interior pages of the daily newspaper issue for the historical record. Sales circulars and inserts will continue being microfilmed as has been our long-standing practice. For issues of the Beaufort Gazette 1903 – March 2010, see the Beaufort Gazette holdings on microfilm. For issues of the Island Packet 1970 – March 2010, see the Island Packet holdings on microfilm.
