This is the account by a lifelong journalist in Texas who recorded needed information accurately for thousands of neighbors and citizens for many years. HOMETOWN NEWSPAPERS are the glue that helps hold folks together by accurately recording the news people and their accomplishments, anniversaries, birthdays, births, ball games, graduations, and sadly, the obituaries of neighbors and relatives.
In spite of the near over-load of electronic communication devices which may or may not always have the accurate information that Americans want and need... There Will Always Be The Need for a "Hometown Newspaper". These are the vehicles of which necessary information is passed. How Long? As long as there are local public school athletics, cheer leaders, spelling contests as well as stock show blue ribbon winners distributed. Community hometown newspapers have met the challenge of delivering the necessary--and by that we -- accurate information that residents need-- there will be the need for Hometown Newspapers. How long? New babies are announced. Weddings reported. And sadly, obituaries are symbols of the passing of citizens. In print, on time and historically 99 44/100% accurate. No other media can truthfully make that statement! This book is a detailed account of the education and practice of regularly bringing information to an area. The accuracy, attractiveness and regularity of the LOCAL NEWSPAPER is what merchants, big and small, depend on to have their advertising print right and put into the hands of citizens for immediate and/or future use. It has to be right-- that's what stands on the integrity of the local system.
