       The ancestor of this weekly was founded by Edward Breen in 1879. It
was known as the Blue Mound News but later was changed to the At. Horeb News.
Breen sold the paper to Pat Kenney in 1883 and soon after it was sold to
H. G.
Elliot and J. N. Dahlen. Clarence Bennett then merged it with the Black Earth
Advertiser and later G. G. Mandt added the Dane County Sun. In 1892 the
Mt. Horeb Progress was consolidated with the Sun and a year later the tit.
Times was formed by J. N. Dahlen and J. N. Risjoid as a result of the last
merger. Dahlen published the paper for thirty consecutive years and then
to the present owner, F. S. Zintz.
