Social media content, the popular venue for what’s going on now, likely won’t exist for future historians. Perhaps there’s efforts to maintain and preserve what is reported, but find it. The challenge and the duty of your weekly newspapers has long been to make certain a record of what went on in Toledo, Tama, Chelsea, Montour, Vining and all of Tama County continues to exist for future generations. Whether it was uncle Harry building a new store or aunt Nellie campaigning for a courthouse candidate, the newspaper records have stood in Iowa over the years. An IowaWatch story today calls attention to the drop of state-wide funding to continue to preserve Iowa’s newspapers for the future. Here in Tama County, we do continue to enjoy the preservation efforts through the Tama County Historical and Genealogical Society. Society President Joyce Wiese reports all Tama County newspapers are microfilmed and brought up-to-date every three years. that includes The Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald, Traer Star-Clipper, Dysart Reporter and Gladbrook Northern-Sun Print. Plans also call for microfilming and updating the Reinbeck Courier and Belle Plaine Star Press Union as part of the collection.
