Welcome to The News-Tribune

Welcome to The News-Tribune. We are the only weekly newspaper in Defiance County, serving many of the communities in northwest Ohio.

My name is Mary Ann Pepple-Barth. I began working at the Tribune in 1974 for my father, Merle Pepple, and have been editor/publisher since purchasing it from him in 1990. My sons Michael Gregory ("Greg") and Jonathan David ("Jon") work with me as well, making us a third generation newspaper/printing company.

We take great pride in being a three-generation family-owned and operated business, starting with my father as editor/publisher in 1970.

Growing up in a small town in Indiana, I learned very early in my life how important it is to stay focused and to serve your community as best you can. The lifeline of every small community is the newspaper. It becomes the heart of the community and it is my pleasure to serve the Village of Hicksville in this capacity, now and in the future.

The News-Tribune focuses on news in Hicksville and surrounding towns such as Antwerp, Sherwood and Farmer, making it a favorite of former area residents who want to keep up with the happenings in their hometown. The subscription area of The Tribune's weekly circulation also covers nearby towns of Bryan, Defiance, Mark Center, Edgerton, and Antwerp

Tribune Printing, Inc., publisher of The News-Tribune, offers full-service printing for Hicksville and the surrounding areas. Business cards, stationery, envelopes, flyers, yard signs, wedding and graduation invitations, thank you cards, and many other business and personal printing needs can be met without leaving Hicksville.

Hicksville is located on Ohio's western border, approximately twenty miles northeast of Fort Wayne, IN. Hicksville township was founded in 1839 on land owned by the the Hicks Land Company under Henry W. Hicks of New York City. Hicksville was one of several communities settled out of the Black Swamp Area of northwest Ohio, and was officially incorporated in 1875.

Today Hicksville is a growing community with a population of approximately 4000, with another 2000 in the surrounding township. Hicksville has grown from a small farming community to a thriving business and commercial village with several factories and many successful businesses. Hicksville has a school system ranked among the top in the state and also boasts a nationally recognized banking center and hospital.
