The I-70 Scout was founded by Douglas Claussen in October, 1994. Delivered by bulk mail to Watkins, Bennett, Strasburg, Byers, Deer Trail, and Agate, the paper has enjoyed considerable success by simply giving advertisers results. Since 1994, the business has been incorporated as the I-70 Publishing Company, Inc. and two other products have been developed. First, www.i-70scout.com was launched in August, 2000. Second, the Eastern Colorado News, our legal newspaper, was acquired in July, 2001.

We are members of the Colorado Press Association and the Associated Press.
