Elkhart Truth celebrates 125 years in 2014

Posted on Jan. 4, 2014 at 12:00 a.m. | Updated on Jan. 4, 2014 at 3:42 p.m.

The Elkhart Truth turns 125 years old Oct. 15.

To put that in perspective, The Denver Post is 121, the Houston Chronicle is 112 and The Indianapolis Star is 100.

To celebrate our quasquicentennial, we started 2014 by unveiling a special flag. Today we republish the first in a year-long series of historic Elkhart Truth front pages.

We’ll also post a video on www.elkharttruth.com the 15th of each month looking back at the paper’s history and ahead to its future. Our celebration will culminate in October with a special event in downtown Elkhart. We’ll fill you in on the details as the date draws nearer.

We’re profoundly grateful for the opportunity to chronicle this community’s history for the last century and a quarter. We continue to take seriously our responsibility to hold those in power accountable, to speak on behalf of those who otherwise have no voice, and to inform, educate and serve the community.

Above all else, we are grateful for the trust you have placed in us for nearly 125 years.

We look forward to many more years together. But for the remainder of 2014, let’s reflect on some of the biggest events in our shared history.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
