Paper turns 100

February 3, 2004

Cairo - The Cairo Messenger turned 100 in January. The community newspaper has published a weekly paper every week since 1904.

The Wind family has owned the paper since April of that year. Randy Wind says, "It makes you feel good. It makes us proud that our family has been able to maintain it and the community has supported us. We've had good support from the community and we've tried to support the community, to promote the community, so we feel good about it."

Wind says the paper will continue to focus on events going on throughout the community.
