Eureka Montana didn't always have a newspaper. For many years the Lincoln County High School student newspapers served as the community paper in their biweekly publication during the school year. The Evergreen and Ksanka carried stories, articles and ads for the community in addition to school news. During the years Eureka was considered the Christmas Tree Capital of the world it was the Evergreen and Ksanka that kept the community informed. The paper had student editorials on local happenings, farm, ranch and logging reports along with Libby Dam preconstruction articles. Some local births and deaths were news items, along with club meeting, accidents, weddings and hunting successes. These newspapers were vital to the Tobacco Valley of Northwest Montana and today much of the history is preserved through the papers.
