Letter to the editor
Jeff Whitten NEW
Jeff Whitten had several jobs with the Bryan County News.

Editor, I omitted a very important name from my farewell column last week. Her name is Linda “Woodie” Hansford, and for a lot of years and for many people she was the face and caring voice of the Bryan County News. She was here when I arrived in 2006, and her knowledge of the community, combined with her patience and kindness, helped save my bacon on many an occasion.

Thanks for everything, Woodie, and also many thanks to publisher Mark Griffin for the opportunities. Finally, I’d like to extend a sincere “thank you” to all those who have emailed, called or posted comments online regarding my time at BCN. It’s undeserved, but much appreciated. Take care and keep in touch, please.
