According to Wikipedia , “the first publication in Elkhorn was a handwritten news bulletin reproduced on cyclostyle. Founded by F. Greenstreet in 1886, the Elkhorn Breeze was applauded by the Manitoba Free Press as ‘a credit to that prosperous young city.’  In spite of such praise The Breeze had ceased publication by the end of 1887.”
