Column: A thank you to the people of Hastings
In late August 2006, I got my first assignment as a reporter at the Hastings Star Gazette. Mick Humbert had just biked across the country to raise money for a church in Red Lake, Minn., and I went over to his house to talk about it.
Since then, the people of Hastings have consistently surprised and amazed me. It's with a heavy heart that I bid the citizens of this city farewell this week. I've taken a new job at a public relations company and will start there soon.
