Thanks to my former colleague, Doug Floyd, for taking up his pen again and writing our main Labor Day story today in the Boomer U section. One of my favorite lines: “I loved my job, and I miss the friends and the engagement with events that was part of my life for 42 years. I follow the newspaper as a reader now, and in an age of shrinking newsrooms, it’s good to know my stepping aside helped make room for some other journalist to have the same opportunities. I can’t say I never miss the job, but there’s a reason they call it a job.” And thanks to S-R photog Dan Pelle for his great photos of Dan with his grandkids. Doug should be happy the hot tub picture only ran small on the front page today!
