  • A new chapter

     

    It's been said that we all have a story to tell. Well, my story is changing, and, in a few days, I will begin a new chapter in my life.

    After nearly 12 years at the CKNJ, tomorrow will be my last day here.

    The decision to accept another job in the community wasn't an easy one for me. The CKNJ has been part of my life since the day I was born.

  • Resolving to change

     

    It’s that time of year again, when most of us will make a New Year’s resolution or two, promising ourselves that we’re going to do this, or stop doing that, when the new year begins.

    Usually, we look at it with excitement and determination. The first week, maybe even the first month, we’re on the path to our goal. After that, many resolutions sadly fall short, and we’re back into our old ways.

  • Here's to a newsworthy 2015

    And what a year it's been. We read about city and county business, the economy, retirements and hires, political changes, crime, death and much more.

    Read about the Top 10 stories of 2014 on today's front page. The year in sports will be in Thursday's issue.
