The "Appeal-Democrat" is a daily
broadsheetnewspaper printed in Marysville, California, in the United States. It has an estimated circulation of 23,000 copies a day, primarily in Yuba and Sutter counties. The paper also is sold in Colusa Countyto the west and Butte Countyto the north.
The "Appeal-Democrat" formed from the 1926 merger of two earlier newspapers, the "Marysville Appeal" (founded in 1860) and the "Marysville Evening Democrat" (founded in 1884).
R.C. Hoiles, who built the Freedom Communicationsnewspaper chain around the Santa Ana paper that became the Orange County Register, bought the "Appeal-Democrat" in 1946 and placed his son-in-law Robert C. Hardiein charge as its publisher.
Hardie directed the paper for the next 55 years, as circulation rose from about 7,500 to more than 20,000. Even as residents and businesses gradually shifted west from Marysville to nearby Yuba City, Hardie kept the "Appeal-Democrat" in its longtime home, twice acquiring new headquarters there (in 1950 and 1986).
Editor: Len La Barth, former Web editor of the "
Santa Cruz Sentinel", who joined the "Appeal-Democrat" in September 2006.
