Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
Town Talks In 1936, a number of interested citizens headed by Mr. & fVrs. Wuesthoff were organized for the purpose of publixhing a newspaper. The paper was issued monthly, free of charge to all citizens of Mlequon and Thiensville. The purpose of the paper was to keep the citizens informed of the ac- tivities and news of the Town, Town Board proceedings and when the Town Board meetings were held. The cost of printing the paper and postage was covered by the mer- chants and business people placing advertisements for which they had to pay. All of the work of putting out the paper such as gathering the news, editing it, etc. was done gratis by willing helpers. Many points of interest in certain civic affairs were aired. No side of an issue were taken, only the facts printed. This little paper was very popular, but financially it did not prove very successful. After some years of publi- cation, interest failed and the paper was discontinued.
