Knowing how important it is to get to read what is happening around town and in our schools; Mrs. Babbitt and a group of friends started the Springville Independent News, last June, a few months after the Springville Herald was shut down. The Independent News is a subscription newspaper, which means you pay to have it sent to your home or you may pay at a store.
