Goodbye Gary Crooks

Dear Gary Crooks:

I’m sorry that you have left the paper. I am a retired 81-year-old lady that reads the paper every day from cover to cover. I stay informed with the latest and best news. I enjoy the Spokesman and I read the Opinion page every day. I feel I am much more informed than young people who get their news from You Tube or some other such place.

I want to thank you for all the good work you have done. I will be praying for you that your future will be bright.
