The last hoorah in Starkville …

August 14, 2013

By Mary Garrison
Daily Times Leader Editor

This isn’t the first time I’ve written this column, and I knew I would eventually I would be writing it for Starkville Daily News, I just hadn’t planned on it quite this soon. We all know what happens to the best laid plans of mice and men, though. Fortunately, my plans have changed for the better this time, though I’ll admit it’s a bittersweet song.

You see, dear reader, by the time you read this, I’ll be gone. Tuesday was officially my last day as the news editor for Starkville Daily News. I’ve been promoted within the ranks of the company, and today I begin my new role as the managing editor for the Daily Times Leader in West Point. It’s exciting and a little scary; this is my first venture into the editor’s seat without a safety net, so to speak, and while I know within reason what I can do, it’s a little intimidating nonetheless.
