Gold City Gazette

Check out Oroville’s own online newspaper,  I would like to start a new contest in the paper. 

This contest will be called “How well do you know your town?” and would entail my taking a picture in a downtown business.  The picture would be of something unique to the business, an emblem, a piece of furniture, etc.  The picture would be placed in the paper, and the first person to guess the location where the picture was taken would win a prize.

I would like Oroville businesses to get involved in the contest by contributing prizes for the winners, a gift certificate, an item from the store, etc.  The store that contributes the prize is where the picture will be taken.  This will help to acquaint local residents and visitors with the businesses in our town.  It will also give free publicity to the local merchants, as the winner, store name, and prize will be featured in the paper once the location is identified.

If you would like to participate in this contest, you may let me know of you interest through this website.  I will arrange a time to pick up the prize, take a picture for the contest, and get a little more information about your business.

My Newspaper

I have started an online newspaper for my hometown.  I am very excited about this venture.  I love to write, and this is something I am an expert on- having been born and raised here.  I can’t wait to showcase my hometown and bring out all of the things people want to know about Oroville.

The really cool thing is, not only can I keep the people in my community up to date on what is going on, others from all over the world can read about our area.  Maybe I can even motivate some to come and visit our little corner of the world because of what I write in my paper.

I hope you will log on and read some of my articles.  You can access my paper by going to and looking for The Gold City Gazette.
