Love is in the air

February 13, 2013|Linda Murray | Around West Hagerstown

Thursday is Valentine’s Day.

And yes, my thoughts of love are of my family and friends, but I must confess that I also love reading The Herald-Mail newspaper.

Every morning, I start my day with a big mug of coffee and The Herald Mail. I even get up on work mornings an hour early just so I have time to enjoy it.

Once I get to work, I see the benefits of the Newspapers in Education Program. The Herald-Mail donates newspapers every week to schools in the county, which are great teaching tools for educators.
And oh, don’t get me started on the Sunday edition with the special features, such as “A Life Remembered.”


I know, you think that because I write this column that I am trying to sell papers, but that is not the case. My love of reading this paper started many years ago. It did, however, encourage me to call about the job. It is so wonderful to be able to connect with people around West Hagerstown and help get their news out to others.

Yes, I could read it online as many do, but as my husband often says, “It’s the feel of the paper between your fingers and the smell of the ink, you can’t get that online.”
