It was a heckuva ride ... now I'm a former Repository editor

I never thought I'd write this, let alone say. A friend was complaining to me on Friday about something in The Repository. I had to stop him and remind him, I don't work there any more.

There. I said it.

After 29 years, I am a former editor, reporter and columnist for The Canton Repository. I delivered the newspaper as boy growing up. For Rep columnist Gary Brown sent me a nice note. In part, it read:

"Part of me is sad because I know just how much you mean to the Repository, how much you have done -- both as a writer and editor -- to improve the newspaper and maintain it's value to the community."

When they write the history of the Rep, Gary Brown will have a chapter. He is a legend at the newspaper. His words mean a great deal to me.

I will miss working with team of dedicated community journalists there. But this is the right time to move on.

So this chapter closes and another one is opening. I will let folks know about that chapter when the timing is right. But for now, you should know I plan to remain in downtown Canton, living high above the city and taking in the sights and sounds. Our downtown has come so far in such a short amount of time.

It is ripping at the seams ready for regularity to return.

I'll be here to write about.

Right here. For free. I would recommend subscribing to this blog by clicking the subscribe button at the top of the homepage. You will be alerted to new posts and pictures. I love hearing from you as well. So let's open up this chapter together and continue looking at the Views from Downtown.
