B&W newspaper just like old times

Today’s black and white newspaper is like having a throwback Wednesday, reminiscent of my early days here at the Southern Standard when the news was truly black and white and read all over.When I began here 25 years ago today, the idea of having color in the newspaper was futuristic fiction, something out of a James Bond novel. That’s right, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. I began working here as crime and courts writer a quarter of a century ago on this very day in 1990 at the tender age of 25.
