When your great, great grandparent picked up the local newspaper in Corunna, it might have looked something like this.  The special Corunna Now Sesquicentennial logo is an adaption of a 1912 logo used by the long-defunct newspaper, The Corunna Journal.  

The Corunna Journal was first published in 1880, known then as The Shiawassee County Journal.  In 1887, the paper was sold to E. U Gorsuch and the name changed to The Corunna Journal.  It continued in publication until 1913.

It's one of many Corunna-based newspapers that has been published over the course of the last 150 years.
