After nearly eight and one-half years of coming into the homes of your readers on a weekly basis, I write to inform everyone that my personal column will no longer appear in the Olive Hill Times and Grayson Journal-Enquirer.
I recognize that economic pressures on the newspaper industry are forcing cost-cutting measures across the country. At the same time, I deeply regret that my column has become a casualty of these hard times.
Writing my column was a pleasure and a privilege and I appreciate the opportunity to share my views. I also am grateful for the reader comments, both positive and otherwise, over the years.
I’ll always be a proud son of Carter County.
Gone but hopefully not forgotten, Keith Kappes (firstname.lastname@example.org)
