Citizen of the Week

Thursday, May 6, 2010

This week's COW is none other than Vernon Tucker, longtime journalist and newly-retired editor of the Lovely County Citizen. As Vernon at last takes the hard-earned time to pursue his "ultimate photography project" and his love of the outdoors, he leaves behind a treasure-trove of well-turned phrases, insightful opinions, commentary and editorials in the Citizen and other newspapers to which he contributed. Taking this step away from the newspaper business after nearly 50 years doesn't mean Vernon is through with journalism by any means, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, he'll be enjoying a few days out on the river and relaxing with the newspaper over his coffee at Myrtie Mae's with no deadlines!

Note: The nature of the Internet makes it impractical for our staff to review every comment. If you feel that a comment is offensive, please Login or Create an account first, and then you will be able to flag a comment as objectionable. Please also note that those who post comments on lovelycitizen.com may do so using a screen name, which may or may not reflect a website user's actual name. Readers should be careful not to assign comments to real people who may have names similar to screen names. Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

The only person in my experience that I would unreservedly call a genius. Plays well with others; does not tolerate fools gladly. I am SO curious about the ultimate photography project.... go Vernon!
