Horizons editions begin this Sunday

The Suffolk News-Herald will continue a long publishing tradition on Sunday with the publication of the first two sections of its annual Horizons edition.

This will be the second year the News-Herald publishes the special edition in weekly parts through the remainder of the month of February. This week’s sections will cover Education and Industry. Three more sections — covering People, Health Care and Faith & Family — will publish Feb. 21. The final sections — A Look Back, Looking Ahead and Quality of Life — will publish Feb. 28.

Horizons historically has been the Suffolk News-Herald’s most comprehensive special section of the year, and it was split up into separate editions last year to give readers plenty of time to digest its content, which consists of in-depth stories about subjects that often are not covered in the course of the newspaper’s normal operations.

To celebrate the end of the first decade of the new millennium, this year’s Horizons theme is “10 Years of Progress.” Articles in each section will focus on the changes that have been seen in the area — especially during the last 10 years — and the expected progress over the next decade or so.

“Horizons has proven to be one of the larger projects we take on each year,” Suffolk News-Herald editor Tim Reeves said Wednesday. “These editions give us the time — and the space — to focus on interesting aspects of our city and the impressive changes many have seen in the past 10 years.”

Extra copies of each Horizons edition will be available at the newspaper office at 130 S. Saratoga St.
