The last issue of The Waynedale News was a pretty good one. In fact it was a great issue. Since Bob Stark has owned the paper many readers have commented on how much The Waynedale News has improved and grown over the past few years.

It is my belief that the paper wouldn't be what it is without the help of The Waynedale News Staff. Each person gives the best that he or she can give to the paper, sometimes without sleep or food or by no other means than the will to just get the paper done....

I suppose the kids who first had automobiles, and didn't have to hitch up the horse, had a similar feeling. One of the programs in those very early years of TV...

Do you remember watching TV in 1954? It's been 48 years since Engineer John first appeared on local television. The show was titled "Cartoon Express" and the year was 1954. It debuted on WKJG-TV, which started broadcasting on Nov. 21, 1953.
