Today, April 26th is a good day. It is the last night of production which means I will never have to spend countless hours at the Herald again.

No more not being able to go home till 2 or 3 in the morning. (The worst was when I was here till 4:30 but that was because it was an eight page issue.)

I hope everyone had a good winter break but unfortunately the Spring semester starts in just a few days. Personally Monday will be my first day as Editor in Chief for the Herald. I think I speak for the rest of the staff when I say we are excited to start publishing again. Our first issue will be out Thursday January 15.

Besides Meghan Allen and Cecily Long, who are responsible for Opinions and Entertainment respectively, we have an entire new staff of associate editors. Austin Emerson has taken over as Sports Editor, Ashley Helliwell will be the Photo Editor, Derek Good will be our Online Editor and Wendy Miller will be the News Editor.
