SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Post-Intelligencer published a thick commemorative issue tracing the history of Seattle’s oldest newspaper as its final print edition.

The last edition of the P-I began rolling off the presses at a suburban printing plant shortly after 10 p.m. Monday.

The front page of the commemorative section featured a headline saying, “You’ve meant the world to us,” and a photo of the 30-foot neon globe atop the P-I’s building, which has a slogan rotating around the equator saying, “It’s in the P-I.”

The paper was to be delivered wrapped with 20 to 24 pages of photos and stories on the P-I’s 146-year-old history.

The P-I announced Monday it would become an Internet-only news outlet, making it the largest American newspaper to shift entirely to the Web.
