These are the newspapers that have been published in the county though out the years.    Some are still in publication, some are not.

See  "Missouri Newspapers on Microfilm" at The State Historical Society of Missouri"  book for dates available for these and other newspapers.  These are available  for inter-library loan.  

Also, see University of Missouri Library and their newspaper section at         http://www.columbia.edu/cu/libraries/subjects/news.html

This is a valuable resource for general information and leads.  You can find information like:  who sold land, crops, or livestock; visitors to the area; who the county supported as wards; deaths; who was arrested; and general local interest stories.   ( This is where I first found out about the Gold Mining Co.)
