Welcome to The Scott County Record's website.

The Tri-County Advocate
Haxton decided to tie the three neighboring counties of Wichita, Scott and Lane together with a FREE monthly publication that would represent their communities with news, sports and by promoting their events.
The first Advocate hit the presses on Tuesday, August 11, 1998 and had 12 pages. The idea was akin to the many shoppers on the market, however, Haxton wanted to offer more meat than advertising and bring communities together by giving them the news from their surrounding area.
The Scott County Record began it's website in November 2004. Tony Jasnoch was employed as webmaster while he lived in Texas. He moved to Scott City and completed his work on the site in 2006 when he took employment with the North Platte Telegraph in Nebraska. In 2007 The Scott County Record joined Pixel Power Haus in designing the current website. Pixel Power Haus is located in Hays, Kansas and is a division of Hays Daily News.
On June 1, 2007 The Scott County Record opened it's doors in it's new location at 406 Main St., Scott City.
