Newspaper Celebrates Milestone

An eastern Kentucky newspaper is celebrating a major milestone this month.

Tom and Pat Gish are celebrating their 50th anniversary as the owners of the Mountain Eagle in Whitesburg.

With a number of prestigious awards, the Gish family says they've worked hard to support Letcher County, and now after 50 years, there are three generations working on the same newspaper.

Sally Barto says her grandparents had a long hard journey of fighting for press freedoms.

Now they are looking to the future and hoping to make the newspaper available online in the future.
