Superior Telegram publishes court records as part of its commitment to serving as a custodian of the local historical record. All items are public records provided by the Supreme Court. Individual requests for items to be withheld will not be accepted.

Our newsroom occasionally publishes stories under the “Employees” heading. Often, the byline “staff” is used when rewriting summaries of basic news that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, which requires little or no reporting. Sometimes, this byline is used when a news story involves multiple authors or when a story is formed by piecing together previously reported news from different sources. If external sources are used, this will be noted within the story.
