Hughes Brothers

Frank, Ted and Tony Hughes

The Hughes brothers started working at the Mineral County Independent-News in Hawthorne as young men in the 1940s and 1950s and eventually performed nearly every job at the newspaper, from running the presses to selling advertising and writing news stories. They became partners with Jack and Pauline McCloskey in 1986 and sole owners in 1994. As editors, business managers and publishers, Frank, Ted and Tony Hughes embodied the Nevada tradition of a locally owned, community newspaper.
