HAGERSTOWN - Newspaper employees watched The Daily Mail churn along the press on its farewell run on Friday, the afternoon paper's final glory after 179 years. They were transfixed by the massive press making a sweet racket that no longer will be part of downtown Hagerstown's midday bustle. The Daily Mail - a victim of withering circulation for evening newspapers - isn't going away entirely. It will merge with its 134-year-old sibling, The Morning Herald, starting Monday. The new morning publication, called The Herald-Mail every day, will have all of the same features from the two departing newspapers.

Only a major rescue effort can save minor league ball David Blenckstone, general manager of the Hagerstown Suns baseball team, calls reports that the project to build a new stadium is dead "a setback. " That's true, in the sense that the appearance of that darned iceberg was a "setback" for the Titanic. It will take a miracle - like the arrival of a $5 million donation, for example - to revive this project now. The Blenckstones moved the team here from Myrtle Beach, S.C. under a lease agreement with a clause that allowed them to leave early if attendance didn't hit agreed-upon targets.

Our afternoon publication, The Daily Mail, reached a historic milestone Friday. It turned 175 years old. The Daily Mail, which is among the oldest continuously running newspapers in Maryland (yes, it's older than both The Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun), shares its July 4, 1828, birthday with two other historical events in our nation's history. On that date 175 years ago, President John Quincy Adams removed the first spadeful of earth in Georgetown for the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.

Weird veggies draw attention I called my mom a couple of weeks ago to tell her I was going to be on the evening news. WJZ-TV Channel 13 in Baltimore had come to Hagerstown that day to do a story on The Daily Mail's feature of running photos of local people holding odd-shaped vegetables. The TV station learned about The Daily Mail's veggie feature by reading a story about it in the Baltimore Sun of all places. So I told my mom to watch me on TV. It's not every day I get interviewed for a story about the paper.

The Herald-Mail's ninth annual landmarks contest continues. Ten clues were published in the Lifestyle sections of The Herald-Mail, The Daily Mail and The Morning Herald last week. Clue No. 1 has been disqualified from the contest because it does not meet the criteria for contest clues. Contestants only need to identify nine photographic clues for recognizable spots in Hagerstown. The remaining nine clues can be spotted within three blocks north, south, east or west of Hagerstown's Public Square.

It's nice to have a five-time "Jeopardy!" champion sitting next to you in the newsroom when the boss comes over and tells you he wants a historic timeline of the newspaper from its inception in 1828 to the present. When Herald-Mail Executive Editor Terry Headlee told me he wanted Bob Fleenor ("Jeopardy!" champ) and I to come up with the timeline, I knew I was in the clear. That would have been like Joe Torre coming up to me and A-Rod on the bench this summer and telling us he needed a home run from one of us. Bob hit one out of the park.

HAGERSTOWN - Two daily newspapers have become one today. The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail, which each served Washington County and beyond for more than 100 years, are now The Herald-Mail. The 179-year-old Daily Mail and the 134-year-old Morning Herald each printed their last editions on Friday. The Herald-Mail Co. and its parent company, Schurz Communications Inc., merged the two papers into a morning edition because of declining evening readership - which fits a nationwide trend - and to devote more attention to digital news operations, which are growing rapidly, Publisher John League said.

The company pledges to carry in the merged edition every feature now found in either The Morning Herald or The Daily Mail. The company's history dates back to 1828, when The Daily Mail began publishing.

When the new Herald-Mail rolls off the press for the first time on Monday, Oct. 1, the combined edition of both The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail will offer readers the best of both papers. It will be like a new baby being born. That's always exciting. But with that in mind, there also will be a little bit of nostalgia in the newsroom. In essence, the new Herald-Mail also will mark the end of The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail newspapers as we know them. Having worked on The Daily Mail for a number of years now, it has become like a favorite uncle I once knew.

For many reasons, including the rise of the Internet, the decision to merge The Morning Herald and The Daily Mail was inevitable. Like the Baltimore Sunpapers, which folded its evening edition in 1995, combining the two Hagerstown papers will free up more staff to concentrate on what many see as the future of newspapers - electronic media. The Herald-Mail's Web site is already the most-visited in the region and has begun adding videos in addition to the podcasts and e-mail news alerts already in place.

On April 18, 1982, the Herald-Mail was loaded with local content, but nuclear disarmament seemed to be the dominant topic in the paper. An Associated Press story started this way: "President Reagan said yesterday that the United States and the Soviet Union must negotiate a joint nuclear arms reduction to 'end this threat of doomsday which hangs over this world.'" Next to that story was one about the State Department's stance on the arms race. The headline: "State rejects nuclear freeze.
