To the editor:
The Olympic Region is very fortunate that Andy Flynn is again overseeing the Lake Placid News. Andy is a skilled and hardworking journalist who has demonstrated great commitment to his community over the course of his career. He is also a warm, wise and genuine person capable of serving as a terrific mentor and role model for young writers.
Andy has significantly improved the quality of the LPN in the few weeks that he's been at the paper's helm - a fact that has doubtless been widely noticed.
Though the forecast for the future of print journalism often appears grim, the quality of the papers created by the shared staff of the Lake Placid News and the Adirondack Daily Enterprise is a reason for optimism.
