The departure of Jessica Edwards from your staff reminds me to tell you that I appreciate the endurance of this publication. It seems to me that your commitment to the community goes beyond being a professional journalist. Your reports, photos, features, art and editorials evidence your stretch to embrace and understand this community. The story you tell is wonderful, disappointing, curious, interesting and provocative. I truly wish you were electable. Good luck finding a replacement for Jessica. I will miss her. I would miss the Chilkat Valley News. I depend on it to connect me. Thanks.
