Around the Town

In small town America, the information that would not normally be considered news to larger, metro newspapers is what keeps a hometown newspaper interesting and desired among the readers. College honor rolls or graduations, military news, weddings, engagements, birth announcements, community and organization news - as well as the popular Years Gone By column - are some of the many categories covered in this section.
