    I didn't know him, but some people here probably crossed paths with Ed.


    Ed Shur, executive editor of The Fremont News-Messenger and the Port Clinton News Herald, has died. He was 54.

    Shur was found dead at his home Wednesday. Ottawa County Coroner Jerome McTague said he died of hypertensive heart disease.

    Before coming to Ohio in April, Shur was the business editor at the Reno Gazette-Journal in Nevada. During his 10 years at the Gazette-Journal, Shur also was a special-projects editor. He previously worked at The Baltimore Sun and for Minnesota Sun Publications, which included 21 weekly newspapers.

    54 is way too young to go.
