The Shorewood Sentinel
725-2975 January 5-11, 1963 Volume 4 Number 1
ANOTHER STEP FOR THE PAPER
Well, here we start another “section” with the
paper. This makes volume four. We have had great
pleasure in bringing the news to you and yours for
these many months. We as human beings have failed
in some areas, and we hope to correct this, in 1963.
I have turned over the duties of the Herald-

the good things they do and try to overlook the bad
In these days and times we hear too much
about where this one or that went wrong and no
praise at all for the good deeds others do.
If this way of living keeps up, the best of the
world will think that America is wholly populated by a
mob of worthwhile bums.
Each of us as residents of Shorewood have the
responsibility to make our town one that anyone may
be proud of. We must not be recognized as a town of
“bums”. We should all do our best to be a people of
honesty and forthrightness.
As I said in this article last week we should
always practice the “golden rule” and hope the next
guy does the same also.
All of us are judge[sic] by what we do rather
than what we have or even by the words we speak
