About Sturek Media, Inc.

Sturek Media, Inc. is a family-owned business of first generation newspaper publishers, starting with The Pender Times in March 2009 and the Dakota County Star in December 2016. The Star has been sold to Michael Carnes of Mikey C Productions, LLC effective June 1, 2024. The Star can still be viewed here online today. Look for a future change in the website! We believe that newspapers provide a unique and vital service to the communities they serve, highlighting the accomplishments and explaining the challenges of Thurston and Dakota Counties, as well as providing a written history for future generations.
