HUERFANO- If you are a loyal World reader, you may not be familiar with the Huerfano Journal. We are a weekly newspaper covering news and events throughout Huerfano County. We have been publishing the Journal for two and a half years.
Brian and Gretchen Sporleder Orr are the publishers. Before the Journal, they published Western Spirit for nine years- a tourism magazine for southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. Gretchen is the daughter of Sig and Ruth Sporleder. The Sporleders were a pioneering family in the county from the 1860’s.
