Columnist is an inspiration

To the editor,

I want to personally thank Jake Schaad and you for the inspiration the story about him gave me (“Veteran reporter to celebrate 74 years in print,” Aug. 21).

I have been at the journalism game only 50-plus years. At 70 now I know not to quit the job I love.   Older journalists have the ability and patience cured by time. I personally enjoy his history column.

The curiosity never ends and the rewards are enormous I, too, have found. I hope I can contribute well into my 90s as Jake has done. You are blessed to have him at your paper for he is a worthy contributor. We are blessed to read his articles.
