Today the Sandusky History blog writes about someone close to our hearts —  Sandusky Register founding father Isaac Foster Mack Jr.

"Isaac Foster Mack, Jr. was born in Monroe County, New York on August 1, 1837. He moved with his family to Decatur, Wisconsin in 1848. While attending school at Oberlin College, Mack enlisted in Company C of the Seventh Ohio Infantry. At the battle of Cross Lanes, West Virginia in 1861, Mack was taken prisoner. He was imprisoned at Libby Prison in Richmond, Old Parish Prison at New Orleans, and also at Salisbury, North Carolina. After the war, I.F. Mack, Jr. returned to Oberlin College and completed his education."

Mr. Mack is rolling over in his grave from the "new" journalism interpretation by print and image media.

He would be ashamed.

It has been around for well over a hundred years, while many other newspapers larger and smaller have fallen by the wayside. By that definition alone, it qualifies. There is good solid readership, and a huge online following. Like all good papers, people of all walks of life and political persuasion read it. Personally, I like the fact that Matt answers all critics, and does so publicly. Like all dynasties, big or small, it has grown by adding other smaller papers to it's little empire.

I'm wondering if those who have already posted have been as successful in their own little world? 

I think the paper's founding fathers would be pretty happy that the paper is apparently thriving.
