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.

This photo was printed in The Herald-Dispatch on Sept. 3, 1974. Elizabeth Hash Lopina and her mother, Mary Jo Thompson (then Hash), were in front of Cammack Elementary School and had just dropped off Elizabeth's brother, Jay, for his first day of school. Elizabeth was 4 at the time and attending St. Paul's Preschool. "I treasure this photo of me and my mom," Elizabeth says. "It reminds me of the happy childhood I had while growing up in Huntington and the fond memories of the time we lived there. Though I live in North Carolina now, I try to keep up with what goes on there by reading The Herald-Dispatch online."
