Ode to Wes

Dear Mr. Skillings: In this era of sound bytes, online news briefs and attention-deficit disorders, the Rocket-Courier provides a shining example of up-to-date news in an old timey, but innovative manner. Although I am in Susquehanna County, I buy—yes, buy—this paper every week. Your attention to facts, style and to language is very rare. I enjoyed your column and I hope you will still write for the paper occasionally. Growing up in Philadelphia, I had the Inquirer, which was once a stellar independent newspaper, and in the area where I live now we get few pages thrown together that passes for a newspaper. In short, I will miss your professionalism. The new editor, Rick Hiduk, has big shoes to fill. Warm Regards, Lynn Senick Montrose
