And more recently, our fearless leader, Martin Frank, announced he will retire in January after 32 (!!!) years at the paper.
Sad to lose Marty, but he has earned his retirement. Spread the word: @vnewsuv is looking for its next editor, plus the positions I previously tweeted about: reporter (now more specifically features writer) and night desk editor. Thread w/ job links: https://t.co/553pSqci5e

INSIDE SCOOP: Probably the biggest perks of the editor job are overseeing Amanda’s and my ideas for the Lucky 7 News Quiz every week, and also the proximity of the snack table to the editor’s office. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us. Application instructions are included in the job description links at the top of the page.
Nice job, Tim!

Nobody was injured when an apparent lightning strike ignited a fire at home in Vershire last night. Read more.
p.s. Our friends at the Concord Monitor report that lightning caused three fires in New Hampshire.
