Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor:

As I write this, I feel the sadness of knowing that Doris Newman will not be at the Monitor’s office, alongside Joyce Hathcock, to edit and correct the spelling and grammar of what I wrote. There is no doubt that the Wood County Monitor will continue to flourish with Larry Tucker who is a distinguished reporter/editor; yet those of us who have known her, will miss the gentle guidance and enthusiasm of the departing editor/reporter who recently moved on. Doris has been a “liaison” between Mineola and “Mineolans” for many years, and has done so much with utmost truthfulness and integrity. The “silver lining” is that the City of Mineola has gained a wonderful person who will continue to work hard for the betterment of this community.

George Assaf
