This is the column running in Wednesday’s Kentucky Standard, announcing that I am leaving the news business (again). You can read the original here
I have a few other thoughts about my time heading a newsroom, and I plan to expound on those in a bit. But first, here is my official goodbye column:
Nelson County: It has been a privilege
It’s not you, it’s me.
When I was younger, I ended a few relationships with that explanation and was the recipient more than once.
I didn’t always mean it when I said it, and I didn’t always believe the person who said it to me.
But I mean it from the bottom of my heart as I write this column informing our readership and the community that I am stepping down as editor of The Kentucky Standard, effective Nov. 6. I have accepted another job offer that will be better for my family.
