Paul Ackley Returns to The Daily Advocate

The Daily Advocate is heralding the return of editorial cartoonist Paul Ackley to its pages after a 10 year sojourn to other local Greenville news organizations (County News Online and The Early Bird).

From the December 9, 2022 Daily Advocate:

After a couple year hiatus, editorial cartoonist Paul Ackley is returning to the pages of the Daily Advocate. Beginning with Friday’s edition, readers will once again be able to get Ackley’s take on local issues and the leaders in the community. His cartoons will run every Friday.

Ackley is an Associated Press award winning cartoonist and is able to capture his thoughts on the direction of the community in his drawings. From his laugh-out-loud drawings about the Darke County Fair or sentimental remembrances of some of our community leaders that have passed on, Ackley is able stir a wide range of emotions in his drawings.

A long time resident of Darke County Ohio Paul’s specialty is local political cartoons,
though national issues are not out of his wheelhouse.

That Charlie Brown-like character seems to be a semi-regular with Paul.

Paul was with The Daily Advocate from 2007 to 2012, then spent a few years with
County News Online (archive) followed by a few years at The Early Bird (archive).

Now he returns to The Daily Advocate.
