Editor’s Notebook: 2/9/12

• Always a good day when I can put a picture of a rabid raccoon on the front page – today in negative!

• Afton defeated a proposal for a new town hall this week, and it must’ve been a hotly-contested issue if over 500 voters turned out in that town! Looks like Julian should get out there more often – tonight, in fact.

• I’m remiss in mentioning that our soon-to-retire classified ad rep, Jan Rowe, was named The Evening Sun’s Employee of the Year here last week. Congratulations, Jan! Don’t let the door hit you … wait, I’ll be nice. In all seriousness, it’s an honor truly deserved, and long overdue. And I would know, because I’ve won it myself. Only took me 18 years.
