It saddens me to have to leave my job as news editor but I must say goodbye to everyone as I move on to other endeavors in my life. I have already spent thirty years working in this newspaper and I will now be devoting my time to give trainings on journalism and editing. I hope to pass on the knowledge and skills and help develop young writers who want to become journalists and editors.
I have spent wonderful years working with you. I have seen a lot of talent and potential from everyone and I am sure that you will all go a long way as journalists. I know that you will all work well with the new editor that will take my place as he has also been in the paper a long time.
