Farewell to the Quad Cities

Dear Visitors,

As of September 2014 I am moving to a new part of the country. Once I settle in I hope to start another news blog there. There will probably be other posts and updates on this website, but my focus will primarily be on a new area.

It has been my great pleasure to get to know the Quad Cities. Many thanks to those who shared your stories with me and to those who’ve supported my efforts here just by showing up to hear, watch, or read a story. I will miss the beautiful Mississippi, the eagles and other wildlife, the sound of cicadas in the summer, the fireflies, the churches, the changing seasons, the almost complete lack of traffic, the snow (yes, even the snow), and the people of the Quad Cities who are so dedicated to the upkeep and improvement of this area. I hope, in some small way, my reporting has helped your mission of continually improving this area, which seems to be a common theme in all these communities.

With a heavy heart I move on to a new chapter in my life. I hope it’s a good one!
