Herewith I Say : Farewell

June 23, 2014

Sad to say but I’m ceasing these Glimpses posts…at least on the schedule I have been doing for the last 3 1/2 years. Hope you’ve enjoyed reading them as I have enjoyed posting them. I may post something in the future if I come across something cool (or feel like commenting on something), but the three posts per week is over. In honor of this occasion, I’m including the front of the last Glimpses and then the front of the first Examiner….both from June of 1976. I’ll keep this site up for future reference…thanks again for reading!

In an amazing editorial from November 1947, the paper “tells us” what its intentions and goals are. Too bad all papers don’t follow the type of credo outlined here….(click to enlarge)

Ever wonder who started the Winfield Glimpses newspaper? The following article was published on July 6th, 1966 and answers that question. (click to enlarge)

and if you’d like to see a picture of Mr. Weiss, the following is one of the many ads he took out in the paper.
