(This letter was sent to President Barack Obama by the New York chapter of the National Association of Jewish Legislators President Charles Lavine, NYS Assemblyman, 13th A.D. and to Anton Community Newspapers.)
Dear President Obama:
The New York chapter of the National Association of Jewish Legislators urges you to remain resolute in American support of Israel, which continues to be our staunch ally.
The members and auxiliary of Charles Wagner Post 421 extend our best wishes to Victoria Caruso-Davis for a job well done as editor of the Hicksville Illustrated News. Thank you so much for publishing our column “Legionnaires Log.” You are a true friend of Hicksville’s veterans, our community and our troops. We wish Victoria “smooth sailing” and Godspeed in her new career and endeavors.
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Cory Twibell and I am the new editor of the Hicksville Illustrated News.
As I embark on this new relationship with the community, I find myself in a similar situation as the one former editor Victoria Caruso-Davis reflected upon in her remarks last week on becoming editor of the paper.
I am certain, however, that in due time, I will be immersed in all that Hicksville has to offer and look forward to forming many quality relationships with members of the community. I’m not a stranger to Hicksville – I have written for the paper and also could very well have eaten a burrito next to you at Chipotle.
I am aware that the shoes I’m filling are quite enormous, but I will do my best to maintain the standards of a thorough, objective and informative newspaper each week.
Farewell good friend of Hicksville. It really doesn’t feel like eight years have gone by since we first saw your name listed as editor of the Hicksville Illustrated News. As you can imagine, we didn’t know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised to find not only an ace journalist but also a caring friend. We have watched you mature over the years and looked forward every Friday for your topical articles involving the community of Hicksville.
In February 2002 I went to print with my first issue of the Hicksville Illustrated News. I remember sitting at my desk and wondering how I was going to cover a community I knew hardly anything about.
Now, I sit here trying to figure out how to say goodbye to that same community I came to know and love as if it were my own. After eight and a half years of serving as your editor this is my final issue.
