About three weeks have passed in which I have made a transition from Live Oak County’s newspaper the Progress to Refugio County’s County Press.

I am finally settled in at the Refugio County Press as its new-old editor.

Twenty-six years ago, I was editor here for a year before taking a job at the daily newspaper in Victoria.

I was hired by Martha Lamson in 1986 as a reporter/writer.

I have lots of experience in journalism as well as credentials: bachelor degrees in communication and English, from what used to be Texas A&I University, and master degrees in Communication and English from the University of Houston-Victoria.

I’ve also won state awards for my writing.

I remember a lot of good times in Refugio County, the country life, good people and genuine care for the community. I don’t expect that has changed.

The newspaper should be the heart of the community, and I intend to work toward making it so.

So far, I’ve met numerous people who remember when I was here before. But many more residents of the county don’t know me.

Come by and see me when you get a chance, and let’s get to know one another.

I love Refugio County –plenty of history and real Texas roots here.

As the county grows, we should work together to keep our character and history intact.

And as I continue to meet people and cover your news, I thank all of you who have welcomed me back.

You write like you moved away and now moved back yet you never left the county. Your residence has been in Refugio county for over 30 years so how come you write that you don't expect anything has changed?
