A photographer from the Decatur Tribune attended the recent MacArthur Reunion. Also, the publisher interviewed Donna Camp about how she was able to obtain the Elam's sign for its special appearance, and the newspaper carried images from the event.
The June 29th issue of the Decatur Tribune, therefore, contains a front page notice (complete with the Elam's sign), and full coverage inside with quotes and several photographs.
The publisher has forwarded information on how anyone can obtain copies of the newspaper.
Anyone wanting copies of this week's (June 29, 2011) edition can either pick them up at our newsstands (until they are replaced by next week's edition), drop by the Tribune office (where we have some back editions) or send a check for $2.50 to: Decatur Tribune, P. O. Box 1490, Decatur, IL 62525-1490. The reason we have to charge $2.50 is we have to mail them in a manila envelope and the postage is much higher than the normal postage when all of the Tribs go out on Wednesday. They should be sure to specify they want the June 29th edition with the MacArthur reunion photo page in it.
We talked about Elam's, the page and the class reunion as part of my weekly "City Hall Insider" hour on the Byers & Co. show over WSOY Thursday morning (June 30, 2011).
