17 years

It was exactly 17 years ago Wednesday morning, to the day, that I walked in the doors of the Chronicle-Independent as an employee for the first time. For many reasons I’ve explained in the past, Wednesday, July 5, 2000, was my Independence Day. During these many years, I have been a reporter, assistant editor, editor and now senior writer -- which is, basically, like being a reporter again, except I’m 17 years older than I was in 2000 and I get to mess around with the C-I’s website and Facebook page.
