Herald turns 90, and we want your news clips

The first edition of the Bradenton Herald was published 90 years ago, and we haven't stopped since.

So much has changed in how we remain our community's leading news source: on, on iPads and iPhones, in the e-edition. But as I wrote Sunday, we still relish the sound of that newspaper hitting your front porch or driveway every morning. Just this week, several daily newspapers have ceased seven-day publishing, the largest being the New Orleans Times-Picuyane (and that sparked The Advocate of Baton Rouge to start a new daily New Orleans edition -- good for them!)

The Herald has chronicled so much local history -- often some of your proudest moments:

Engagements, weddings and anniversaries. Babies' first birthdays. Sports spotlights, biggest fish caught, championship seasons. Social galas, neighborhood barbecues, vintage recipes. Graduations, homecomings and fund-raisers. Your four-legged family members.
 Send us photos of your Bradenton Herald clippings! Or call and we'll set up a time for you to bring them in to the Herald for a photograph.
