Thank you readers

The New Year will mark the beginning of a new era for the Northern Lehigh Column. Times News reporter Terry Ahner, who knows the area well, will become the columnist.

A few days ago I turned 62 years old and am taking my early Social Security; however, occasionally will write features for Times News.

I like to thank all my readers for their support through the years and all the many new friends I made. It has been an enjoyable time in my life. My readers with their news tips made it so easy for me.
