The Cross Timbers Gazette

The Cross Timbers Gazette is a locally-owned and operated regional newspaper and website covering local news and people in southern Denton County, TX, including the towns and communities of Argyle, Bartonville, Canyon Falls, Copper Canyon, Double Oak, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lantana, Northlake and Robson Ranch.

The Cross Timbers Gazette was first established in Double Oak, TX in 1979 as The Double Oak Gazette by a small group of determined volunteers to keep the town’s residents informed.

The Cross Timbers GazetteIn 2002, the newspaper was renamed The Cross Timbers Gazette to reflect its growing circulation in neighboring towns.

In 2006, The Cross Timbers Gazette was acquired by Miller Media Holdings LLC, owner of LantanaLinks.com, from longtime owner LaRue Johnson.

Launched in 2003, LantanaLinks.com provided local news and community information for southern Denton County and had quickly grown to become the premier local news website in the area.

In 2010, LantanaLinks.com was re-launched to become CrossTimbersGazette.com. The same ownership, philosophy and mission statement remained: To be the hometown news and information source for southern Denton County.

Today, thanks to our readers and advertisers, The Cross Timbers Gazette is the largest locally-owned, direct-mailed news publication in Denton County, reaching over 140,000 affluent residents each month.
