The Calhoun Chronicle is 100 years old.
Putting the Chronicle together each week is somewhat like
assembling a gigantic jigsaw puzzle. The main pieces of the puzzle consist of
words. Based on the present type used, it would take a minimum of 35,000 words
to fill an eight-page issue if there were no photographs or advertisements.
No one person could possibly write that many words every week.
In its 100 years, the Chronicle has depended on neighborhood reporters to send
in their reports on the doings in their parts of the county. Individuals deliver
to the newspaper office news items, personals, weddings, births, deaths, club
news, engagements, etc.
Organizations and businesses and state and federal agencies send
news releases to the newspaper every day of the week.
Advertisements are received each week from businesses in and
outside the county. There are classified ads to assemble and legal
advertisements that must be published.
Words dominate the entire process of assembling the paper and
getting it put together on layout sheets for the printer.
As much as possible, news stories and advertisements are set up
