Publisher says farewell
The knock of opportunity on my door has caused a major change in my life and in the life of my family. In early November, I will be leaving The Record-Courier to accept a job in North Dakota as publisher and marketing director for a regional newspaper group.
Nevada has been a great place to live, work and raise a family for the past eight years, but it’s time to move on to a place closer to home and this is a great opportunity for me. I grew up in South Dakota and my wife is from Montana. This move will allow us to be within hours of our families, something we have desired for some time.
I am going to miss this community tremendously. I feel so privileged to have worked with so many outstanding business and community leaders. From county commissioners to the town managers, from business owners to civic groups, from youth groups to the seniors, from the fire fighters to the sheriff’s department, the Carson Valley is loaded with top quality people.
I will miss the friends I’ve made her, but will cherish the friendships forever. You have provided me with something I can take with me no matter where I go, great memories. I will think of the Carson Valley often, especially in the middle of the winter when the chill factor reaches 60 below zero and my car won’t start.
Lastly, I want to thank my entire staff for helping make The Record-Courier a better newspaper and a better place to work everyday. We have a great group of employees and they all played an important role in the success of the newspaper, and I’m very proud of them and will miss them.
