1885-2009
Putting the last issue of the old paper to bed

Quoting myself:
Our paper had a fine tradition. It was long a family business: an authentically Catholic conservative German-American one. When I started the former owner still picked up his free copy every week and we got Good Friday off. In a more literate age his product was much bigger/thicker; his long 1960s editorials warning of the global Red menace are of historical value!

Our building, also about 100 (at one time part of it was the town jail!), was very home-like to me.
