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.

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.

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.'"
