2008 was a year of change for the
- New Publisher, new size, a new classified department, some new editorial features, a re-designed Web site, the accounting moving down the hill and now back in the
office. And through all of this, the
staff has kept the faith and given me their support as we have worked through these changes.
So as 2008 becomes part of history and 2009 begins, I would like to say Thank You. To: Maureen Robertson, our editor, whose tireless efforts are reflected in each edition. Tim Hall, photography/layout, who provides the majority of our photos as well as layout for the paper each week. Nancy Stegon, graphic artist. Nancy does a great job in designing all of the ads that go into the paper. Debbie Klem, Nancy Lund and Anita Gentry, our sales staff, who take care of our many clients, and most of all I would like to thank my wife, Anna, who took over the management of the front office and has done an incredible job after Cyndi Tryon went out on medical leave shortly after my arrival. I don’t know what I would have done without her.
I would also like to thank the folks of Ramona, who have welcomed Anna and me and have given me guidance and insight into the community. It’s been a year of many ups and downs, but one that I always will remember fondly.
Thanks again and Happy New Year!
