Manitoba Business: Reston Recorder
This weekly newspaper was established at Reston in 1905 by brothers Frank Manning and Arthur J. Manning, both of whom were teachers. The following year, Arthur Manning returned to teaching as Principal of Reston School while Frank Manning continued with the paper until his death in early 1945. His eldest daughter Helen ran the paper, along with her uncle Arthur, until her brother Russell returned from military service. He took over as publisher in late 1945 and continued until retirement.
The newspaper closed in March 2020.
