Salem News

Roses to our readers. Thank you for supporting the Salem News. We are celebrating our 125th anniversary. That takes us back to 1889. Benjamin Harrison was president, fresh off a win over incumbent Grover Cleveland who would come back to decisively reclaim the White House during the next election. The Eiffel Tower was dedicated. The first crude Kodak camera was sold. Bayer introduced aspirin. Over 2,200 poor souls were lost in the Johnstown flood. Sherlock Holmes came to be and John L. Sullivan won his last bare knuckles fight. Thomas Edison showed his first motion picture and the jukebox made its debut. Back then our readers relied on the Salem News as their primary source for local information. Nothing has changed. That constant remains. We are the foremost source of local information for this community. We appreciate those who appreciate the crucial role this newspaper serves in our city and surrounding communities, both as a print and online information conduit. We appreciate those who understand business decisions, especially in this rampant ever-changing cyber age and choose to stand steadfast in support of us. You can't buy a simple candy bar these days for less than what this newspaper costs. And we don't give you cavities. We happen to think the Salem News is a pretty good bargain. We thank those who value that notion.
