There once was a time when newsrooms didn't have Mac's, digital Canon camera, voice recorders, email communication or scanners.
Newsrooms had typewriters, dark rooms, note pads and pen, face to face communication and the only scanning done was with your eye.
My newspaper, The Southwest Times, has boxes upon boxes of old photographs that appeared in the paper decades ago. Old photographs? At one point it wasn't as easy of snap a shot on a digital camera and digitally input the photo on to the newspaper page on a Mac program like Quark.
What's to be done with all these photos? I don't know but they are sure fun to look through and post on the blog. Expect more in the coming months.
This would be from the Liberal High School Homecoming parade. Unsure of what year but the marching band is traveling down Kansas Ave. in Liberal the main street in town. If you look closely on the right hand side you'll see a sign labeled Bingo. It is still there today and I pass it daily.
I started this blog in July 2009 to tell the story of my life. At the time I had just moved into my parents house in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was newly unemployed and had spent the last year working 70 plus hours a week holding two jobs and living on my own in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I spent the summer job searching and landed a position as a newspaper reporter in Western Kansas. The blog has taken a turn from the daily life on an unemployed 20 something to a true city chic women working and living in the middle of America. Either way this blog marks my adventures, high lights, low points and everything that makes me smile. Thanks for reading!
