The world of community journalism was a little different in Bill Fosterâ€™s day.
â€œHe wasnâ€™t a high-stepping, suit-wearing professional. He was a country guy,: remembers Allan Clarke, Pendulum columnist, who began working here in 1970 under the tutelage of Foster, who bought the paper in 1964 and owned it through 1984, when he sold it to ABC/Capital Cities.
Foster died on Jan. 23, at the age of 88, in Bradenton, Fla.
