"I start every Tuesday- Saturday morning reading The Examiner. I liked the days when I got the Star in the morning and The Examiner in the evening. I no longer subscribe to the Star but am grateful every day that we have a local newspaper with talented and ethical journalists covering our local communities. I wrote a weekly column for The Examiner from 2005-2012, retiring when I ran for City Council. 500 word every week for 7 years was a big commitment but I learned so much about our community through that experience.
