and full of local news, pictures and advertisements for the Bushnell,
Prairie City, Avon and the surrounding communities. Like many
small town newspapers, the McDonough Democrat is correspondent
supported, and relies heavily on people in the surrounding area to
provide the news from their community.
The Spoon River
is a full size commercial printing business located under the same roof
as the newspaper. Like many newspapers, various degrees of
services were always available at the McDonough Democrat office.
1970's when The McDonough Democrat, Inc. was formed, the Spoon River
Press was greatly expanded with a full size commercial printing
business. Still considered a "small" printing business with under

in the area.
