Publisher's Notebook: Sometimes, it’s better to stay out of the way



If you ask me what will I miss the most from this past year, I’ll have to admit it was the 103 degree, sunny days we had in Phoenix. Because frankly, I haven’t been warm since, and doesn’t look like I’m going to be any time soon thanks to this Polar Vortex.

I’ve been in the newspaper business for 34 years, and I’ve calculated based on my current financial holdings, that I can’t retire until five years after I’m dead. So, you’ll likely see me around.

I’m proud to join a long line of distinguished newspaper people who’ve served as president of the KPA. It was a very rewarding experience. I got a few things accomplished. I played some golf. I helped raise more money for our internship program. And I stayed out of the way.

Thank you.
