Although this is not necessarily Fowlerville history, it is interesting to know when other newspapers began publication. In 1880, the following article was found in The Fowlerville Review:
Volume 1, No., 1, of the Brighton Argus made its appearance one day last week. It is a five-column folio published by C.E. Placeway and is "chuck full" of local matter. May it live long and prosper.
Now, if there are any Star Trek fans out there, please take note "live long and prosper" was a phrase way back in 1880!
