Dick Graham, of Republic News Miner, Celebrates 100th Birthday ;)

Congratulations to Dick Graham, editor of the Republic News Miner, for celebrating his 100th birthday!   Dick Graham of the Republic News Miner is not really that old, but I am not 50 years old either, as many concluded after reading his newspaper last week.  The Republic News Miner ran a large birthday announcement, and did not differentiate Steve Graham (me) from his son Steve Graham who does not live anywhere near Ferry County.  Needless to say, I got a lot of birthday wishes.

I haven’t really noticed other Graham family member birthday announcements in the Republic News Miner over the years, but do remember ten years ago a similar birthday announcement when his son turned 40.  I asked Dick Graham about it ten years ago, and his response was that his son was here first.   True.   I look  forward to meeting the other Steve Graham some day.  Who would dream that I would move to a town of about 1000 people and face another Steve Graham?

Not much has changed in ten years.  Except one thing:  there is a thing called “new media.”  I wonder what birthday announcements will look like in the next ten years.

For the record, I am 39 years old.   If you see Dick Graham of the Republic News Miner wish him a happy 100th birthday.  He is a great guy – I consider him a friend – and he has a great sense of humor.
