Heartfelt goodbye

Letter to the editor says so long to newspaper editor.

Editor:

 

This letter is to express my appreciation, Matt, for all you have done for Ladysmith in your time here as editor of the Chronicle.

 

You quickly immersed yourself in the life of our community and became a very respected member of our little town.

 

Your contributions to the spirit of Ladysmith are numerous.

 

From meeting with students at LSS to teach them the skills of conducting an interview, to interacting caringly with our citizens of all ages, to supporting local activities and charitable functions, to chronicling our daily lives pictorially, you have always been willing to go the extra distance to make a positive impact.

 

Under your guidance as editor, the Chronicle has shown steady growth in quality of content and reporting. It has been a pleasure for me to work with you in several areas this past year.

 

I know I speak for the residents of our town and the readership of the Chronicle when I say you will be deeply missed by us all.

 

I wish you and your family happiness and success in your new home and venture.

 

Jillian Easterbrook
