On the Mark: It's time to say goodbye

It's time to say goodbye.

After 42 years of association with our weekly papers, I'm calling it a day.

It's been an incredible journey, starting out as a part-time reporter in 1974 for the then Falls News. In 1981, I became an associate editor of the Stow Sentry and an associate editor of the Cuyahoga Falls News-Press (the merged Falls News and City Press).

Sometime in the 80s -- I don't remember exactly when -- I became editor of the Falls News-Press.

Since that time, I have "retired" and then returned several years later to Record Publishing Co. as a part-time reporter for the Hudson Hub-Times.

Printers ink just gets in your blood and stays there. But my blood is getting thin and my energy level is low, so it's time to go.

I have loved working for the papers. It's been so much fun with so many wonderful experiences I never would have had if it weren't for the paper. There were some sad times, too, but I don't want to dwell on them.

And the people have been fantastic -- my work buddies and the reading public.

It was always such a kick when someone would tell me how much they enjoyed one column or another. I'm not going to lie, I'm really going to miss that ego boost.

Since 1974, I have been privileged to participate in many amazing events associated with our weekly papers. It is my prayer that I have been able to help, and elevate others with my stories and maybe provide a laugh or two with one of my columns.

I do know that my readers have given me much more than I ever gave them.

Thank you.
