With my deepest sympathy I would like to say good-bye to the Tri-County News. The last five and a half weeks have been wonderful, but I no longer have the ambition and need to strive towards writing another story.
It has been amazing to me how many hours it takes for a local community paper to complete each week's paper. The people that make it happen are incredible. The workers put in hundreds of hours every week, and through it all, they can still continue to smile because they are doing something that they truly love for all of their subscribers. The effort they put into each story, every advertiser, and all of the photos has given me a broader outlook on life; I want to go out and put as much enthusiasm into the things that I love, too.
I fully respect and have a genuine place in my heart for the Tri-County News. It is a job of many events and outgoings. To be able to have coverage on so many cities and townships is mind-blowing to me. Along with great coverage, layout design, and fresh fun photographs each week, the paper becomes more and more phenomenal every time.
Although I have enjoyed this internship at the Tri-County News, I have come to the end of my rope. I am still young yet and would like to enjoy the summer air. Most would say that is not a very good reason to quit but, I am working 60-70 hour per week, and in my books that is way too many hours for a junior in high school.
I have a huge adoration and appreciation for all newspapers. I would hope this will not hurt my future in any way, but God is telling me it is time to let go, and go and glorify Him in another way. Furthermore, I would like to thank everyone for making this internship possible, and all of the people that have read my stories.
God's peace, God bless, and happy trails to you all.
