Bang Printing descended from 1899 newspaper
♦  Bang Printing is at least indirectly descended from the earliest publishing firms of Brainerd. It all started with "The Arena," a newspaper started by B. E. Beard, a newcomer to Brainerd in the year 1899. Beard sold Out soon after moving here and the firm passed through several owners until December of 1910, when R. M. Sheets, of Long Prairie, bought it and renamed it The Brainerd Journal Press.
