Messenger will move forward following publishers passing

MARTIN COUNTY - The sudden passing of Bob Dillard has left many broken hearted and wondering what will happen to the Martin County Messenger. Resident of Martin County have enjoyed receiving a periodical for over a century. The first newspaper was the Marienfeld News, published by A. Rawlins from 1887 until the early 1890s. The Stanton Courier was first issued in 1904 with J. LeRoy Lancaster as editor; a little over a year later it was replaced by the Stanton Reporter, which was in publication until 1984, when it became the Martin County News. The owners of the Martin County News would change hands several times over the next seven years until that time Mr. Dillard purchased the newspaper in 1991 and changed the name to Martin County Messenger.

U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway to retire at the end of current term

WEST TEXAS - U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, a longtime fixture in the Texas delegation, announced Wednesday afternoon he is retiring at the end of his term.

"It has been absolutely the worst-kept secret in America today, but I am going to announce that I am not gonna run for reelection in 2020," Conaway said at a news conference in Midland, standing beside his wife and fighting back tears as he tried to get the words out. "Representing the folks in District 11 has been an honor and privilege that I cannot adequately describe."

His retirement is a major blow to the state's clout within the Republican conference. Conaway is a well-regarded figure on Capitol Hill and has served as chairman of the House Ethics and Agriculture committees.
