A shoutout this week, a little belatedly, to Pat Cheek, longtime ad director and more recently the GM of the Middlesboro (Daily) News and Harlan (Daily) Enterprise — daily in parentheses since both changed to multi-weekly in 2019.
Pat emailed Thursday to notify us it was her last day at the newspapers. A well-deserved retirement! Good luck, Pat.
And a Shoutout to Jackie Anders, a reporter who left the Georgetown News-Graphic last week. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Jackie but we did share one thing in common. Jackie, her husband and I were all stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. Of course, I was there about 40 years before Jackie and her husband.
