| Our 150th Special Edition Section
Each week, we try to bring you the latest news available. That stands true for the section you are holding in your hands.
But included in today’s Headlight is a 22-page section filled with old news. In many cases, it’s decades and even more than a century old. That’s because we are celebrating the county’s sesquicentennial. From before our beginnings as a county to where we are today, and a little about where we are positioned for tomorrow – it’s in the special section.
Included in that section, we have a long “thank you” to those who helped make the special edition possible, so we won’t repeat that here. Suffice it to say that it was a team effort. Our goal was to produce a quality section that readers would want to hang on to for years to come. We also wanted something that future generations could pick up and read and learn from. We think we got there, but as always, that’s for you to decide.
A bit of housekeeping: The section will be on our website under a special 150th Edition tab. That tab and the replica edition behind it will, for the foreseeable future, be in front of our “pay wall,” meaning you don’t have to have a subscription to the newspaper to access it. If you want additional copies of the printed version, you can buy this week’s full edition at our office, 101 N. Rose St., for the regular price of the paper, 75 cents. Starting on May 8, when next week’s paper comes out, the special editions will be available for $5 and will be placed in a protective plastic cover. We will also mail them for that amount plus whatever postage is required.
Thank you for your support of our community newspaper, and we hope you have as much fun reading the special edition as we had producing it!
