To our readers:

After a bit more than two years, this edition of the Herald is the final one with me at the helm.

It has been a joy and a privilege to work with and for all of you. Seldom in my career have I dealt with an audience that is so passionately involved in the issues that affect the community, although finding a consensus about solutions often is extremely elusive.

I will miss the lively exchange of ideas, but after more than 50 years in journalism, it is time to turn the reins over to a new generation.

Christian Belanger will succeed me as editor, and Jason Schumer will become publisher. Please join me in congratulating them. I am confident they will be excellent stewards of the interests and needs of Hyde Park.
