The Waseca County News was a strong supporter of the Waseca Waterpark. The Waterpark was said to raise property tax on the Waseca residents, but was also planned to be an area for tourists. The County News also carried the results of the voting on the water park and many editorials from the editors.
In 2006, the Waseca School Board removed Tink Larson from his position as baseball coach. The story made state headlines. Eden Prairie and Minneapolis newspapers covered the story as well. Reporters in the County News were also fired because they allegedly witheld information regarding the case. Their positions were then replaced within a few weeks. The sports writer was one of the men fired. He started a new sports newspaper called Star Sports Extra: Your Sports Source. In the newspaper, he covers the surrounding communities sports schedules. It debuted in October 2006, costing 50 cents per copy.
