Letter: Departing editor will be missed

Listen to this post

It is so sad to read about Jeff Burkhead leaving. He has been such a great booster of both communities and especially for the White River Museum and our local history. On a personal note I am going to miss seeing Jeff walking around town to cover his beat and always waving with a cheerful smile. I have enjoyed his column in the newspaper and felt a closer connection with the people in Rangely because of it. It also kept us all abreast of things going on locally. Jeff spoke of the errors he made. From my perspective, if he made errors, he certainly made up for any errors by being such a great guy and a wonderful newspaperman. We will all miss him.
