Weed Press-Herald was the weekly newspaper for Weed, California. In December 1951, after an accident that involved loggers working for the Shasta Lumber Corporation, a secretary of the company, Marian Staley, approached the paper's editor Dale Dropo about the fact that the town didn't have a hospital or an ambulance service to the nearest hospital in Redding. Dropo agreed that it was a problem, and wrote up an editorial. He cautioned Staley that the town didn't pay much attention to his editorials.[1]
