The Daily News building was built in 1921 specifically for the town newspaper. Over the years, rumors and jokes have been heard from the newsroom to the press room about ghosts haunting the old building. Since inviting members of the Jasper County Paranormal Idealist to investigate the building on Oct. 20, Daily News workers have complained of papers disappearing from their desks and clocks being turned back. Whether the ghosts have been stirred into action or paranoia is sweeping through the creaky halls remains to be seen.
