On Sunday, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch hit the streets in Huntington, and we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of that event in 2009.

Check out our 100 Years site at http://www.herald-dispatch.com/specialsections/100years, and be sure to pick up a copy of our 100th Anniversary Commemorative Edition on Saturday, Jan. 17.

The Tenth Street Journal was a Herald-Dispatch staff newsletter. This issue, from September-October 1987, features sports editor Mickey Johnson and graphics editor Rick Baumgartner returning from a 308-mile trip down the Ohio River. Their research yielded a 16-story series about life along the Ohio.
