  • The Daily Leader, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Friday August 9, 1889

    Freeman Sackett keeps the model printing office of the Northwest. A place for everything and everything in its place. He is an old warrior, and a stand of rifles and bayonets glitter on the rack, which is ranged along the wall. He holds the "Times" newspaper and everything else down in Phillips. Everyone reading the Times, the spiciest sheet in the three-counties. Employees come from far and near to work at the Times office, and no wonder, Editor Sackett keeps a billiard table in the large well lighted airy department. Should the compositor feel weary, or the night editor downcast, he can take a fling at the balls; make a grand carom and write up a runaway; pocket his opponent's ball and work up a fish story; make a bank shot and set up an obituary; go in for "a big push" and settle down on dynamite and a sharaxari[?]. Talking about a sharavari [KR—I think they mean shivaree], Sackett is just as young as any of the boys."

    "By courtesy of the Phillips Times, the pioneer newspaper of Price county since January 6, 1877, it is yet possible to trace those forerunners of the News Calumet, as well as other journalistic ventures in the southern part of Price county. The late F W Sackett (1847–1917) was founder of the Phillips Times and sometime mentor and partner with his younger brother, George E Sackett, who with the latter's son, Freeman, now owns and edits that paper. At the death of F W Sackett, he left many printed pages of an unfinished History of Price County."
