E.C. C. Advocate "Our Local Good News."



“Our local good news!

Proceeds go to help fund ECCRC & Lighthouse Library

 The annual Thanksgiving food box distribution.

Please mail in articles to the above e-mail address no later than the last Tuesday of each

month. Our publication is a monthly newspaper.. Your interesting and

informative local stories are greatly appreciated. The Advocate serves our area

towns of: Atlanta, Burden, Cambridge, Dexter, & Eastern Cowley County which

includes the communities of Otto, Maple City, Tisdale, and others.

We are especially interested in rural articles of human interest. Our rural heritage is

one to be proud of. Nothing is as beautiful and peaceful as the Flint Hills of Kansas

and our rolling hills and plains. We may not have oceans to brag about, but we have

waves of wheat grain and other crops. Their beauty and benefit to our area cannot

be mentioned enough. Our part of the county and the state is a well-kept secret .
