The Market

Morton, located in east Lewis County, is at the foot of the Cascade Mountains, nestled between Mt. Rainer, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams. U.S. Highway 12, a major all-season, east-west route, provides the area tourist industry with hundreds of thousands of visitors who come to enjoy fishing, camping, hunting, rock climbing and world-class skiing at White Pass. Timber manufacturing, govermental and public entities such as the U.S. Forest Service, four school districts and a hospital district make up a very stable employment base and provide an excellent payroll for this professional, yet ruggedly individual region.

The Newspaper

Newspaper Strengths

The East County Journal is depended on by our communities to inform, educate and entertain. While many newspapers cover just one town or community, The East County Journal is the one complete information source for nine east Lewis County communities. Each of those communities is covered weekly in the Journal; from community correspondents, school boards, athletic events, city council or civic groups -- each locale treats The East County Journal as its own. The Journal is commited to each community.
