As the features editor of this newspaper for the past seven years, I’ve learned how much the Extra section means to you.
Whether it’s the comics, puzzles, health columns or stories written by our staff — there are many of you who read every single word.
Through this little CornerShot space, I’ve learned about your childhoods, your pets, your children and the fact that many good Samaritans live in our area.
I know I’ve told you about my childhood, my random observations and my mother-hood tales.
That’s why it seems the proper space to say farewell and thank you.
I will be moving to Missouri, to become the assistant managing editor of features at the Kansas City Star. My last day was Sept. 13.
Thank you for sharing your stories, for giving us ideas, for calling out errors so we can be more accurate.
Thank you for voting in our comics poll all those years ago, and for participating in our reader submission queries — I’ve always been amazed by the level of response.
I am happy to say I’ll be leaving you in good hands with food writer Lindsey Nair, who has been named the new features editor. You can reach her at email@example.com.
Now I join you as just another faithful Roanoke Times reader.
