    And to answer the first question, Harold Stout is retiring after many distinguished years in our operation. Big shoes to fill.

    Tommy, what do you know about the digital editor position that just opened up? Was thinking of applying. You can PM me with the details if you don't want to post here since it's news-related too.

    Great sports section and staff. Tommy Deas is top notch. But that's said every time there's an opening at this paper

    Harold Stout is top drawer, and it will be a huge hole to fill. That said, I am certain TD and the T-News will rise to the challenge.

    Tommy is as good as it comes. It's an APSE machine there.
