The Advance. January 6, 2021
Founded in 1901, the Vidalia Advance was a Democratic, eight page, publication delivered every Tuesday. The first editors, J. H. Breedlove and J. A. Mobley, set the subscription cost at one dollar per year and reported on the weekly activities of the community. In 1915, A. B. Cargile, editor and publisher at the time, oversaw the Advance becoming Vidalia's sole newspaper with a circulation of over 800. The paper merged with the Lyons Progress in 1991 and was renamed the Advance-Progress. That same year, the publication became Toombs County's legal organ. The paper became the Advance in 2003 and continues to serve readers Toombs, Montgomery, and Lyons counties.
