Weekly celebrates 11 years of travel

From football games to ocean depths to mountain heights, you Take Us Along

It's hard to believe it's been nearly 11 years since former Police Chief Tim Neal dropped off a photo of himself reading an early edition of the Pleasanton Weekly in front of the Statue of Liberty. We liked the photo and ran it with a catchy "Take Us Along" caption.

We know that our readers liked it, too, because we've received -- and published -- more than 1,000 similar photos since launching the Pleasanton Weekly on Jan. 28, 2000, which makes today our 11th anniversary of serving Pleasanton.

Since then, the Weekly has been taken to all seven continents and most countries, and now even to The Sudan, a photo we'll run shortly. Thanks to professional (and deep sea) photographer Jerry Pentin, who owns Spring Street Studios in Pleasanton, we've even been underwater where reading a newspaper, let alone photographing it, can be difficult.

With 60 of your "Take Us Along" photos still waiting to run, it could be a while before last year's are published. So it's on to new 2011 and new ventures. Take us along and send us your photos.

–Pleasanton Weekly staff

I'm sorry, I guess I'm the minority here, but I HATE "Take Us Along". To me it's wasted space in the paper. The LAST thing I would pack for a trip is the local newspaper!

Then I guess I'm in the majority. I truly enjoy seeing places that other people are able to visit. Gives me travel ideas.
