Somewhere in the house, maybe in a scrapbook, you've got it.  The newspaper clipping from that time you got your name or your picture in the paper.  Chances are it's from the Moose Jaw Times Herald.  Those days are gone.

The Times Herald put it's final paper to bed on Monday.  The sold-out issue hits the streets today.  The local newspaper has been a part of local life for 128 years.

I have so many fond memories from my days as a paperboy delivering the paper to my first real job as a sports reporter a the Times Herald.  I got my start there.  I'm proud to say it.

They had just replaced their typewriters with computer screens and keyboards back in 1983 when I first worked in that dark, ink stained newsroom.  It was great experience and I met some wonderful people.

What strikes me today is the fact the Times Herald not only kept us up-to-date on local happenings, it also recorded local history.  That won't happen from this day forward. 

I'm not sure how we're going to do that now.  That's a shame.
