Komen for the Cure. Obituary Received The newspaper received an obituary for William K. Smith who died February 22 at 84-years. Mr. Smith had a long career in newspaper publishing. The obituary specifically men- tions he was publisher and editor of the Mt. Pulaski Times in the late 50s and early 60s "in Mt. Pulaski, Illinois". Your editor recalls a note in a copy of the Times-News in the 1960 - 1962 era about a young journalist being employed at the pa- per. But -- of course - Mr. Wible was pub- lisher- editor of the paper, not Mr. Smith.
