From there to here, from here to there, Journal readers are everywhere. As Ohioans and people throughout the United States and around the world practice social isolation, the Journal staff thought it would be nice to look back to the many special places readers have traveled and look ahead to a time when those trips can take place again. Each week, the Journal will post photos from different years, beginning this week with the year the spotlight began, 2009. Yes, loyal readers have been submitting stories for more than a decade, and the staff has enjoyed seeing each one. For now, readers and advertisers are encouraged to submit photos of themselves reading the paper or its online version from a park bench, while cooking on the grill or sitting in the car while seeking solace from too much togetherness in the house. Photos may be submitted by email to email@example.com. Please note the name of the person(s) in the photo and their hometown/business as well as any other details you may want to add.
