Times-Record Appears on History Channel

The front page of the Valley City Weekly Times-Record dated Aug. 6, 1914 was recently shown on the History Channel's mini-series "The World Wars."

Mike Entzminger emailed the Times-Record May 29, stating that he noticed the newspaper containing the headline, "Great Britian Declared War on German Empire Last Night." Entzminger said his birth announcement appears in the same newspaper.

The Times-Record is wondering why, of all the newspapers across the nation that likely had a very similar headline that day, the Times-Record was shown.

The episode can be seen at http://www.history.com/shows/the-world-wars/videos/trial-by-fire?m=51897.... The Times-Record appears at 6 minutes and 41 seconds.
