The Benton County News is a weekly newspaper published every Tuesday in
Foley, MN 56329. Foley, the county seat of Benton County, was named for
one of several brothers who came from Canada in the early 1880's. One
of them, John Foley, helped build the town which became incorporated in
1900. Foley was named the seat of Benton County in 1902. The Benton
County News was founded by Severyn D. Youso in 1932 and has been run by
the family since then. Sev’s son Ron Youso is the current publisher of
the newspaper, and Ron’s son Keith Youso is the editor. As a small weekly
paper with a circulation of about 2,200, we hope to help maintain a sense
of community, and provide a forum for news of local interest and benefit.
