This could be close to being considered a phantom newspaper. In March 1910 this Amedee newspaper made its debut. It received good reviews from the neighboring press for a brief moment. In the second issue of the Homestead an editorial account drew scathing remarks, as the Homestead was not going to endorse local candidates if they did not advertise with them. While fate of the duration of the newspaper is unknown, its doubtful it never saw election day. Who was behind the newspaper, is not known, and there are no surviving copies.
