The quotation under the flag of The St. Ignace News is from the 10 triads written by Dr. Fred Newton Scott, creator and teacher of the first continuous course in journalism in the United States at the University of Michigan in 1890. The 10 triads are chiseled on the parapet of the Detroit News Building at 615 Lafayette Boulevard, Detroit. They were headed “Ideals of the Press” or “The Newspaper in a Free Society,” and serve as a reminder of what a free press means to us.
