The Tillsonburg News is a weekly newspaper with a long history focusing on local coverage in the Tillsonburg, Ont. area going back to 1863 as The Observer, several years before the town was incorporated in 1872. Not recovering its lost advertising revenue during World War I, the Observer merged with its main competitor The Tillsonburg Liberal in 1920 to form The Tillsonburg News, which continued as the town's only newspaper until the late 1980s. After buying the five-year-old Tillsonburg Indpendent in the mid-90s, The Tillsonbrg News has faithfully served as the voice of the community with a current circulation of approximately 10,000. Long-time columnists Laurel Beechey and Linda Hoffman, who have been writing opinion pieces and promoting community events since the 1980s, and slo-pitch columnist Dave Weaver since the early 90s, continue to broaden the scope of community coverage. Other popular columnists include Kelly Spencer, who writes about health and wellness issues; Jason Pankratz, who writes about the Tilllsonburg Legion and historical happenings; Mae Moffat on golf; and Angela Lassam on horticulture. The Tillsonburg area on Big Otter Creek was first settled in 1825 by George Tillson, who built the area's first forge and sawmill. The village of Dereham Forge was renamed Tillsonburg in 1836 in honour of its founder, who laid out its wide main street, Broadway, for a logging, wood-product community. Broadway became one of the widest main streets in southwestern Ontario. Times have changed in Tillsonburg, which has grown into a town of nearly 16,000 in Oxford County. Bordering Elgin and Norfolk Counties, The Tillsonburg News uniquely serves a readership from all three counties. Located on the western edge of Ontario's tobacco belt, which developed in the 1920s, Tillsonburg has a hard-working spirit historically reflected in the Stompin' Tom Connors song, Tillsonburg... 'My back still aches when I hear that word.' With the decline of the tobacco industry in the 1980s, Tillsonburg has diversified into automotive supplier and related industries, and remains a strong agricultural community. A passionate sports community, Tillsonburg was home of the Livvies senior men's basketball team, who represented Canada at the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki and 1960 pre-Olympic qualifier for Rome.
