Thanks to the Daily Herald, I know that it’s National Newspaper week.
Bob Paddock, Jr., penned a piece in which he told of his grandfather’s goals:
“Our aim: To fear God, tell the truth, and make money.”
The aim remains the same today:
“…to respect the world in which we live, to do well at our jobs, and to generate the resources to pay for these efforts.”
Paddock says his grandfather “…covered the ordinary goings-on in town, and also drew attention to things of importance he observed.
“This was what journalists across the country and throughout the world have tried to do — to observe and report.”
