Skagit Herald owned locally

Mount Vernon's Skagit Valley Herald, 1000 E. College Way, is owned by Leighton Wood and wife Susan Scripps-Wood of the Scripps-Howard clan.

The newspaper building and land was purchased in 1990 at a quit-claim price of $35,000 from the now defunct First Scripps League Realty. Today, (2003) building and land are valued at a total $1.06 million (To gain and maintain an iron grip on local communications takes connections and money, to the intense surprise of all).

The paper recently was owned by the Skagit Valley Publishing Company, 221 1ST Ave. W. #405, Seattle, WA 98119, with Delancey B. Lewis as registered agent.

Now it's apparently owned by the Scripps-Wood Limited Liability Corp. Ultimate registered agent is John A. Reed (under a series of corporate masks).

Wood may be reached at POB 578, Mount Vernon, WA, 98272 or (360) 424-3251.

Wood's other ownerships reportedly are at 1243 S. 10th St., Mount Vernon, WA, 98273 and 121 N. Ball St., Sedro Woolley, WA 98984
