EDITORIAL

From Where I Sit


by Dale Jacobs
Odyssey Times Editor


For the first time in my newspaper career, I no longer have to worry about finances and trying to get by from week to week. As you’ve probably heard, The Odyssey Times was purchased by a media conglomerate.

The Times has been a special part of my life for nearly as long as I can remember and I feel like I have been running at a breakneck speed for the entire time. I barely had time to think about the next week’s issues, let alone what was going to happen in the future.

And I loved every minute of it.

Keeping up with what happened in our town, getting to know all the people, informing the public of everything that happened…I can truly say that I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

I will stay on here at the Times as editor, but I can now relax a bit and put the keys to the newspapers in the hands of others. You can expect the same high-quality of news reporting and the same assurance that our reporters are serving you. I look forward to serving the Times for many years to come.
