Proud to serve you, since 1889

By Chuck Kajer

If you take a look at the front page of this newspaper, you'll see something new. Chances are, you didn't notice it. It's really a very small part of the paper. it's simply a new number... 118.

This is Volume 118, No. 1 of The New Prague Times.

The New Prague Times was published for the first time on September 6, 1889. Will H. Taylor was the first publisher and editor. And following the tradition started by Mr. Taylor and continued by many others, today, we begin our 118th year of informing the New Prague area about what is going on in our community.

The role of the newspaper has changed since our first issue was published. In 1889, there was no electronic media - no radio or television and certainly no internet. Quite often, the only national news someone got was through the local newspaper.

In other ways, community newspapers haven't changed that much. Throughout its history, the community of New Prague has looked to The Times to inform them about what is going on in the New Prague area. We report on the city and counties, on the schools, on the businesses and on the many different groups and organizations that serve the area. We introduce the community to new people, new ideas, new organizations and new services, and we let them know what businesses are in the community and what products and services they offer.

Some of us at The Times have served the community for many years, and others have only recently joined our team. But we all have one thing in common: We are proud to serve the New Prague community by bringing the news to your doorsteps, mailboxes and newsstands each week, and we thank you for letting us into your homes and places of business. We will continue to work to earn the trust you put in us.
