ANNIVERSARY Farmside's 30th Anniversary Thirty years ago, April 1960, soon-to-be-wed Quinn (Scoop) O'Brien and Suzanne LeGrand, brought the first issue of The Huntley Farmside rolling off the presses. Through ups and downs they worked to establish The Farmside as Huntley's own hometown newspaper. In 1960 the 8-page paper cost 7 cents and a one year subscription was $2.50. With 30 years of rising costs a 1990 Farmside costs only $.25 or $8.00 for a yearly subscription. With the births of 3 sons, Quinn, Scott and Jim, The Farmside grew into a family enterprise. Over the years each family member contributed to building the Farmside. In the 1970's Scoop kept the paper alive with his new wife. Marge, and their 3 children, Heather, Shawn and Beth. Through family highs and lows the Farmside continued to make its weekly appearance. During Scoop's illness and extended hospitalization Katie and the staff kept the Farmside coming out on schedule. After the death of Scoop O'Brien in 1986 there was no question of closing down or selling out the newspaper. Suzanne returned to take over running the paper herself. Though living in California with her new husband, Robert Brown, she is still sole owner. Through her current staff, Suzanne is still trying to give Huntley the same hometown-style, family oriented, good-news newspaper. The Farmside personnel, from top to bottom, appreciate everyone's help and support in this aim. The town and paper continues to grow. We hope for another 30 years with all our friends in Huntley.
