About Us
Over 100 Years of Experience

    The first issue of The Republican was published the first week of March 1877 by owner/editor James Hayden, a decorated veteran of the Civil War. He chose the name because of his extreme admiration for Abraham Lincoln, our nation's first Republican president. The newspaper was purchased by one of his employees, Benjamin Hinkle ("B.H.") Sincell in 1890, and he printed his first issue of The Republican on his 21st birthday. The newspaper and commercial printing operation has remained in the Sincell family since that time, with representatives of the fourth and fifth generations now managing the business. Current editor and president of Sincell Publishing Company is Don Sincell, and his sister Mary Sincell McEwen is the assistant editor and vice president. Mary's husband John is also in management, and Don's daughter Rachel is a member of the news staff. Don is only the fourth editor The Republican in its over 133 years of publication, having succeeded his great uncle George Hanst, who had followed Benjamin as the editor.

   The Republican has a circulation of about 11,000, and is one of the largest weekly newspapers in the state of Maryland, averaging over 40 pages per week. The newspaper has subscribers in every U.S. state, and copies are also sent to many locations throughout the world, primarily to local folks serving in the military. All corners of Garrett County, plus some neighboring areas in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, are covered in the news columns, and advertising customers are also located throughout the county and in neighboring states. The news columns also typically feature dozens of photographs in every issue. There is also an online edition of The Republican.

   Sincell Publishing Company‚Äôs commercial print shop has also progressed over the years, having greatly expanded its capabilities to include top-quality, full-color printing of booklets, brochures, stationery, window cards, business cards, and just about any other printed product one may require.
