MARTINS FERRY - Beginning Tuesday, The Times Leader will publish its annual special supplement highlighting the progress being made today toward moving our communities in the Ohio Valley forward.
The Times Leader's annual Progress Edition is an award-winning series of special sections that provide in-depth examination of the status of the Ohio Valley's educational opportunities, health care services, industries, entertainment and leisure activities and community leadership.
Although this year's Progress Edition examines many content areas, the primary focus of the five-section series will be how each area is moving forward or branching off in "A New Direction."
Tuesday, the spotlight is on energy and industry in the first section. Wednesday's paper will feature special sections on health care and education. Thursday's paper focuses on community leadership, entertainment and leisure activities.
Each section contains articles and photos covering a wide variety of sub-topics ranging from how technology has changed our lives to how new industries are reshaping our future and.
As always, the annual Progress Edition represents months worth of work by The Times Leader's newsroom staff and advertising department.
Once again, this year's effort to develop an array of comprehensive articles was a collaboration between the newsroom staffs of The Times Leader and The Intelligencer/ Wheeling News-Register.
The T-L's Emily Dominici designed the eye-popping covers for each of the sections, which were put together by the newspaper's news editor, Mike Hughes.
We hope you enjoy taking a special journey in 'A New Direction' with this year's Progress Edition.
