They say dynamite comes in small packages, well these days so do great community newspapers.

Since 1989, Call Newspapers has been south St. Louis County's best source for local news, sports and advertising. From the start, the Call's direct mail circulation has brought the community closer together. Today, the mailman's weekly delivery is one of the most anticipated of the week.

People say they "just love that little paper,'' when they find out where we work, or when customers overhear our sales people's presentation to local businesses. Oakville Call was launched without fanfare to zip code 63129 in August, 1989. By December, sales had already exceeded the company's projections for its third year of operations.

"The combination of hard-hitting and pertinent local news, direct mail delivery, our readers' response and the business generated by our advertisers is very gratifying,'' said Publisher Deborah Baker.

The company followed with the Concord Call for postal zip code 63128 in November, 1990. SunCrest Call began serving Sunset Hills and Crestwood bi-weekly in 1996, followed shortly by the Green Park Call throughout zip code 63123 in 1997 and Mail Call to zip codes 63010, 63026, 63125 and 63123.

Today, people know that if they want to know what's going on in south county, they've gotta read the Call.
