And there is another facet we are introducing to readers — that of content you can find exclusively online at the Herald’s website.
In the past few weeks, we have added a history section that can be found in the index on the left side of the Clinton Herald homepage. Click there and you will find a multitude of stories by Gary Herrity, who is the Clinton Herald’s historical columnist. Gary has written columns for us for nearly a decade and last month we started putting those columns with photos on our website to allow readers to have access to historical data in one, easy-to-find place.
Also added are several family genealogies as provided by Mike Kearney, a member of the Clinton Herald Editorial Board who also is an avid researcher of Clinton’s history. Photo galleries also are being added to the site, with more content to come.
This gives our readers one more reason to seek us out, not only as the newspaper of record that documents the daily happenings in the community, but also one that provides historical perspective and a place to learn more about Clinton’s beginnings.
We hope you, our readers, enjoy this addition.
