Hippie Makes Good

Kudos to my old friend and former boss, Tom Joyce, on his awards at the recent North Carolina Press Association meeting. See for details.

Looking good, Tom! You look like part of the "establishment" now and so unlike that skinny, rebel, radical, long-haired, kid who wore fatigues every day. Ah, the good ol' days at Patrick County High School! Speaking of hippies, Tom, do you recall that I dated Richard Rorrer? (Richard was the photographer for the high school paper, The Liberator; I was editor.) I can still remember Jackie Beeler screaming at Richard because the staff camera was dangling around his neck and banging against the water fountain when he stooped to take a drink.

Congratulations, Tom. The News is lucky to have you.
