You know you’re working somewhere special when your colleagues range in age from 19 to 83. In fact, The Voice-Tribune has three octogenarians on staff: Lucie Blodgett, John Harralson and Earl Cox.
In the coming months, I’ll be working on an article about each one of them. Sure would love your input to help us celebrate the collective decades of time and talent they’ve put into The Voice. If you have any anecdotes or photographs about Lucie, John or Earl, I hope you’ll reach out and let me know. My contact information is at the end of this column.
The Voice-Tribune has recently debuted a new online-only column that is definitely worth checking out, particularly for fashion lovers. Fitz Fitzgerald is our newest addition, and he’s already turning heads with his blog, Dressed Behavior.
