 FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — APRIL 16, 2014 —

Dozens came to the West Sacramento Historical Society reception on April 3 at the city community center. The reception launched the opening of a mini-exhibit on the 50th anniversary of the News-Ledger.

Publisher Steve Marschke talked about the past, when the paper was led by lifelong newspaperman Julis Feher and by Michael Garten. He also spoke about his hopes that the local community will, sometime in the future, take the helm of its own local media outfit to spread news and information in print, online and on a planned new FM radio station. Partners are now at work on this.

The exhibit can be viewed inside the center at 1075 West Capitol Avenue.
