About Us

The Bonney Lake & Sumner Courier-Herald began in November 2003 as the Bonney Lake & Lake Tapps Courier-Herald, and offshoot of its Enumclaw progenitor. Sumner coverage was added in 2008 following acquisition by Sound Publishing and a subsequent merger with the Sumner Reporter. Our print edition brings you government and community news every Wednesday. Our Community Photography, Business, Seniors, and Education sections run the first, second, third and fourth Wednesdays of the month, respectively.
