Friday, 09 April 2010 00:00About ten years ago, I remember staring at a blank document on my computer screen not knowing what to say to a community that I didn’t know.
I had just started as the editor of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Herald and my first assignment was to write an editorial introducing myself to the community. Now, I sit here not knowing how to say goodbye to a community that I have spent the last 10 years getting to know.
After a decade of serving as your editor, this is my final issue.
I want to thank you for welcoming me into the community and telling me your stories. I have met so many amazing people and take with me so many memories and friendships.
I want to specially thank the regular contributors to the paper who started as acquaintances to me and became friends. The community is lucky to have you.
Also, thanks to page designer Lucia D’Onofrio for her steady hand and watchful eye and always making the paper look so great.
