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. 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.
As of January 2014 the average pages printed in The Scott County Record is 32 and up to 52 pages, including special sections. It has a circulation of approximately 1,900 papers. With nearly 800 papers selling off the newsstands weekly.
It has 5 additional pick up sites: Heartland Foods, Casey's, Presto and UPumpIt.
The Tri-County Advocate averages 32 pages and is mailed to approximately 3,200 homes in the counties of Scott, Lane and Wichita. It features not only a news section but also, sports, farm and professional business directory. The Advocate is usually mailed out the first week of each month.
