Happy retirement, after 44 years

Sheldon Shafer, 73, announced this week he will retire as a Courier-Journal reporter in November. 

He started at the paper in 1973 so he’s been around the Courier-Journal newsroom some 44 years.

Three years ago, on his 70th birthday, the city of Louisville announced it was naming a fancy swing set at Water Front Park after him.

Here is a link to the dedication ceremony in 2014 with numerous Courier-Journal reporters and former reporters commenting on Sheldon.
