I have been with The Times Dispatch since 1998 and marked my 11th anniversary with the newspaper in May. It does not seem possible that 11 years have passed since I first walked through the TD doors, and I can't help but wonder if all 100 years of the newspaper's existence have passed as quickly.
We often say that as we finish one paper, we begin the next, and perhaps that makes the weeks, and the years, seem to go by even quicker. Nonetheless, I cannot imagine anywhere I would rather be than working here, serving the people of Lawrence County, as The TD marks its 100th year of publication.
