Another farewell

Sue Capon, the one and only editor at Sun Media's weekly Picton County Weekly News, is calling it quits this week.

The paper's lengthy online farewell says Capon has been an editor at Prince Edward County newspapers under various owners for 25 years and was founding editor of the County Weekly News when it was launched in 2000.

The following quote speaks volumes for why she has decided to quit:

"Coming changes to the way the newspaper will be created presented me opportunity to embrace change in my own life. So while I leave the County Weekly with a heavy heart, I am optimistic there will be exciting, interesting adventures yet to come."

Ross Lees is the incoming editor of the former Osprey Media weekly.

Kudos to staff for giving Sue a proper sendoff.
