It doesn’t seem like it has been over 40 years since I started working at the Reminder. That’s why it is with mixed emotions that I am writing what will be my last column for the Montevideo American-News.


It doesn’t seem like it has been over 40 years since I started working at the Reminder. That’s why it is with mixed emotions that I am writing what will be my last column for the Montevideo American-News.

I have an opportunity to become a partner in a paper in another location, an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up. The change will be difficult.

Saying goodbye to co-workers and friends is more difficult than I ever anticipated. The friendships and business relationships that I have formed will last forever.

I want to thank the Montevideo community for all its support over the years. It is a fabulous community and will be hard to leave.

My wife, Jenell, and I will return often to see the kids and grandkids, so I will be sure to stop and say hi to all.

I have complete confidence that the reliable staff at Montevideo Publishing will continue to provide this area with quality news and advertising well into the future.

Goodbye and thank you all.

Quote of the week
Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I’ll miss you
Until we meet again!
