Lorain County was, and still is, largely rural – and the local newspapers reflected this in their content over the years.
The Chronicle-Telegram over the years had a great, longtime column called "The Country Wife" written by Pat Leimbach. For me, it was often the best part of the paper, because it was a little window into a world (the rural life) that was nearby, but out of reach to most Lorainites.
The Lorain Journal apparently had a similar column in the early 1960s that I've discovered recently, called "Farm Wife's Window" written by Ethelberta Hartman. The column below ran in the paper on September 8, 1962 and has a topic that any bird lover would find interesting: red-wing blackbirds and how they can be a friend – or foe – to a farmer.
