This will be my final paper as sports editor here at the Iola Register.
Goodbyes are never easy, especially when it is genuinely tough to leave. I arrived here in Iola two years ago July after a rough four months in the wild west of Dodge City and immediately felt welcomed and at home.
Ive been privileged to work for the Register over the past couple of years. Its a first-class newspaper and citizens of Allen County should feel blessed to have an institution like this one still churning out high-quality content. Youd be hard-pressed to find another paper in an area the size of Iola that kicks as much butt as the Register does and Im grateful to have been a part of even two years of its storied history.
