Off the Publisher’s Desk – 8-28-2013


I wish to express my gratitude to all of you that stopped by to visit me at the Minnesota Newspaper Museum at the Minnesota State Fair grounds. I had a chance to visit with many of you and my co-workers informed me about people who stopped to visit while I was not there.

 I was amazed by the number of people who stopped by and wished us good luck in finding an answer to what the future of the museum is. Apparently we will not know for sure until later this week about what is to happen. The current plan is that we will be moving our collection of antique printing equipment out of the building into storage until a new home can be found, if that is possible.

My hope is that the fair will move our building to a new location on the fairgrounds.

On another note, the Glenwood City band marched Sunday afternoon at the fair. I walked over to the barns and looked at the Budweiser Horses and then viewed a milking demonstration. I am from a farming community, but learned more about how cows produce milk and how they are milked at the barns.

But for the rest of the state fair I will still be in Heritage Square just west of the grandstand. I know it has been very hot and we suffered with the heat over the weekend. If you are still planning to go to the state fair, please stop by the museum and say hello. The fair runs through Labor Day.
