The paper is located in a one-story brick building in the downtown area. The building was constructed in 1919. The keystone in the arch above the door reads: "NANCE A.D. 1919". Wikipedia describes "Nance" as follows: "Nance was a publisher of community newspapers in Oklahoma beginning at Chandler in 1918, he and wife Ayleene had owned newspapers in Marlow, Walters and Purcell. A joint partnership with Joe McBride of Anadarko, Nance McBride Newspapers, owned weekly and daily community newspapers in Weatherford, Tonkawa, Clinton, Hobart, Henryetta, Hominy, Mangum, Anadarko, Sulphur, Alva, Poteau and Antlers. The ownership group included a local operator partner in each community. Nance continued to write weekly editorials for the Purcell Register on public policy matters until the week he died on September 3, 1984 at the age of 91 in his home at Purcell."

A photograph that depicts your presence at the building is necessary. This can be a picture of your GPSr in the foreground in only one of your many pictures, or if you're not too camera shy, put you or a team member in the picture. Maybe even buy a newspaper while they're still in business. They need all the help they can get. No picture, no new log. And no icon.
