I was cleaning out some old items from my office shelf this morning and ran across an old edition of the Minden Press-Herald, a newspaper that has been in my family for four generations. It was a commemorative edition, marking the opening of their new facility in 1986.
As I scanned the pages from “yesteryear,” I ran across the following headline: “Spechts believe newspaper should serve readers and that’s what they aim to do…”
The story quoted my grandfather, Arthur, and my uncle, Bill. Both men were instrumental in guiding our “flagship” newspaper throughout part of the 70s and all of the 80s. The story showcased some of their history before coming to the newspaper, along with some of their involvement in the community.
