George got done in 1975, Dave passed away in 1978 and John retired in 1992.

The Queen Central News got it's name from Camden. Camden is known as the Queen Village. Central is for the surrounding areas, and News keeps everyone involved.

Jim, John and George all worked for the Advance Journal which was sold to people from out of town in 1974. That is why the QCN got started. together they purchased the Advance Journal in 1975 and combined it with the QCN in 1981.
