I wish I could have joined well-wishers at the retirement party for Kathleen Merryman, and I’d like to extend my good wishes to her. This talented journalist/writer has contributed greatly to the popularity of The News Tribune over the years, highlighting the contributions of people in her community by writing columns that reflect life in the South Sound.
Her words — friendly, warm, nonjudgmental — will remain a living record of that life. I feel privileged to have been one of her readers. Thank you, Kathleen, and enjoy your next adventure.
