    The first paper in Eau Claire was titled the Eau Claire Times, in 1850.  This paper was published by a man named N. B. Spencer.  Spencer was a witty, intelligent man who I am informed, loved to party.  He would go out on the town and actually jeopardize his printing business. Selway and Winegar who published the paper after Spencer went on to publish the Durand Times.
