About
Big enough to serve you, small enough to know you.
Description
The first issue of The Kalona News was published on November 19, 1891 and continues as Kalona's oldest continuously operating business.

The News provides readers with the most comprehensive coverage of news, photos, sports, features and advertising of any publication in northern Washington or southern Johnson County.

The Kalona News dropped Kalona from its name on Nov. 2, 2017.

Publisher Jim Johnson said the change reflects the newspaper’s coverage of all communities in northern Washington and southern Johnson counties. The names of the four largest communities served by the newspaper – Kalona, Wellman, Riverside and Lone Tree – have been added to the newspaper nameplate.

“The name change is the latest in our efforts to be more reflective of the communities we cover,” Johnson said.
News is information about current events. News is provided through many different media: word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, electronic communication, and also on the testimony of observers and witnesses to events. It is also used as a platform to manufacture opinion for the population. Common topics for news reports include war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, fashion, and entertainment, as well as athletic events, quirky or unusual events. Government proclamations, concerning royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health, criminals, have been dubbed news since ancient times. Humans exhibit a nearly universal desire to learn and share news, which they satisfy by talking to each other and sharing information. Technological and social developments, often driven by government communication and espionage networks, have increased the speed with which news can spread, as well as influenced its content. The genre of news as we know it today is closely associated with the newspaper, which originated in China as a court bulletin and spread, with paper and printing press, to Europe. Wikipedia
