Jimmy, paraphrasing from my blog posts, here ...

John has big shoes to fill, but from what you've told me, I'm sure he'll do well. It really can be a very exciting position, and it's one whose job description changes with the passage of time AND the development of technology. That's something you and I know, from first-hand knowledge and experience, as (now) former editors of mwt.com ... I wish John nothing but success.

And I also suggest he look to his predecessor, to you, for guidance. You took the newspaper's virtual property into new directions, and achieved new heights. You are one of a select group in Midland's virtual community who showed that the Internet can be a positive and productive force in the actual community. You've been there, done that ... and we're all the better for it.

Good luck in the future, my friend!


Wow! All the best to you, Jimmy! Proud to see you following God's will and your dreams! Go get 'em! :-)

Dolores Pina

Jimmy, I wish you God's blessings on your newfound venture! I am so excited for you and know you will do well! I've enjoyed your writing!


Thanks Gwynne and Dolores. I am grateful for your kind words.

Jeff, it's a constantly changing medium and one I have enjoyed being a part of. It will be nice to be an observer.

Jeff Johnson

Good Luck Jimmy! I'm glad you're finally taking the plunge. Trust me, it will be worth it!

Kudos to you my friend, for finding courage from your inner wizard (*grin*) to forge a new adventure and career.

We get so tied to that weekly paycheck, it becomes harder and harder to let go. I am envious you have found a way to spread your wings.

Much good luck, looking forward to seeing more Jewels from Jimmy soon!



Welcome to the wonderful world of freelancing, the best and scariest job you'll ever have! I hope your boss is more understanding and patient than mine. ;-)

God bless you and your family, and may He grant you the desires of your heart. Can't wait to put your work on my Kindle.

Craig Campbell

It's just hard to think of that place without you there. I shared some great memories while working with, even if just for one year, it left an impact on me. I can't wait to see what your writing.

Please look me up for Blogging for Fairhavens again I'll gladly donate my time/energy even if it's just help at the booth.


Three projects right off the bat! Fantastic!

Aim high when you make your first quarterly tax estimate.

Steve Drummond

Best wishes Jimmy in your new venture. I'm sure you will be successful.
And, Joe Dominey could use the competition.


Good luck, Jimmy!

I firmly believe when a door closes, another one opens....and sometimes it happens in reverse. Such as in your case. Would you ever regret not 'stepping out' and seeing if your wings could fly? Of course you would...and being the optimist that I am, I truly think you are made to do bigger and better things..We'll be watching!

I owe you 5 bucks for the nice comments in the column. Hope all goes well with the books, and don't forget we need to do lunch before you get too busy for us common paper folks.


Stew ... $5 bucks? That's like a dollar a year. You're worth much more than that.
