It's been good to know you, Colfax
By: Gloria Beverage, Colfax Record Editor
It’s been grand, Colfax, but I must say good-bye again. Starting on Monday, I will be taking over as editor of the Placer Herald newspaper in Rocklin. I’ve been fortunate to work and play in Colfax for nearly 10 years. I was editor of the Record in the late 90s, returning to this position nearly five years ago. Since returning to the Record, I have thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting with folks and making new friends. What I will remember most will be the generosity of this small community. Whether it was fundraising to help pay a young father’s medical bills or gathering donations for the Giovanni’s staff, this town believes in paying it forward. And I’m proud to have been able to report on that community spirit. Know that you’ll be in good hands, readers. Martha Garcia, currently editor of the Loomis News, will be taking over as editor. Since she grew up in Colfax and has also worked for the Record, I know you’ll welcome her with open arms.
