“Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins”

“There was a woman by the name of Lilie Harrell and she was one of the Social Editors, writing columns about visitors and weddings,” said Dianne. “That’s something the papers don’t do any more. We’d have people call in and say ‘I had company over last week you know,’ and we’d write it up and have it in the paper that week.”

Another woman she said she remembered covering Social News was Ann Brown.

“This was something she wanted to do after her husband, Clyde Brown, died,” said Dianne. “She was really good at getting the Social News.  She knew a lot of people.”

She said that this trend of putting in the Social News continued until the Woodhams took over the paper.

She said she also remembered a man and his son that worked there.

“Mr. Savage and his son, Jimmy, used to work there for a long time,” she said. “Both very good at working with the press and setting type.”

Another set of people she said she remembered was Wayne Marsh and his wife Nancy.
