September 05, 2013Sometimes change is necessary. Other times, it's just sad and hard. The latter is how I feel about David Ross no longer being the editor of The Roadrunner. Although I am still fairly new to Valley Center and had only known David since January, he will always hold a special place in my heart. David was the one who gave me my first shot at publishing my work, "So I Was Thinking ..." which runs weekly in The Roadrunner.
Although David and I did not always agree (who does?), he and I built a relationship with mutual respect for each other and our ideas. David truly cared about the paper, its readers and his community. He is a rare breed, and I, for one, will miss him. Godspeed, David, on all your future endeavors.
