All things must come to an end
By: Philip Maenza
This will be my last editorial as the Editor of The News Journal. It has been a great experience being Editor these past few months. I have enjoyed getting to meet with all sorts of different people in the community. I have learned so much about Florence and the rich history and amazing people that live her.
I will be starting a new job here in Florence. I will still be an active member of the community and will still be involved in a lot of the areas I have already been involved with. I look forward to the new opportunities and new people that will meet along the way.
I would like to give a special thank you to all of my co-workers here at The News Journal. I would like to thank our Publisher, Don Swartz, for giving me this opportunity. I would also like to thank our production department head, Beth Streett, for all her hard work and for helping me along the way.
Finally, I would like to thank Catherine, Kadee, and William for being great co-workers who always made the work day fun.
A final special thank you to all of our readers for allowing me to step into this role. It has been a wonderful journey that I am forever thankful for.
