I used to throw the Chronicle in the morning, the Guide after school, then the Bee in the evening. As hard working as I was, you would have thought I would have made something of myself. I was told John Bonadelle started the Guide in order to have a Conservative/Republican newspaper in town. It lasted for a lot of years, but I guess you can only lose so much money before you quit worrying about getting the 'right' message out there.

My brother and I used to deliver the Guide in the mid-60's. One added benefit - every Wednesday there was a discount coupon for Me-N-Eds.
(at one time Me-N-Eds was the best pizza in town - of course there wasn't much competition back then)

At some point the Fresno Guide went to a color first page, this one from 1977. But growing up, I remember the older banner as first posted on this thread. We were a Fresno Bee family, meaning that we used the Guide for other things than reading. No disrespect though, it was after all a home grown Fresno product. You will remember that everyone got thrown the Guide even if you never paid for it.
