Co-Publishers Ron and Anne Loesch show off some of the 40 bound volumes of the Petersburg Pilot along with the first edition of the paper. This week marks the 40th anniversary of the newspaper that was started by Jamie Bryson who was the publisher of the Wrangell Sentinel at the time. In 1975 Von Braschler purchased the paper and in July 1976 sold it to Loesch.
