newspaper editor Dick Lutz announced his retirement in the December 12 issue after 19 years on the job. According to Mr. Lutz:
... If I could magically grow younger instead of older, I would not vacate this post. But it is time to get on with other projects, deferred for 19 years while dedicated to this community enterprise.

Again, because it bears repeating: Thank you, Roosevelt Island.

The Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) tweets:
WNYC profiled Mr. Lutz and the Main Street WIRE volunteers in 2011

and the Wall Street Journal did too in 2015.
The future of the Main Street WIRE newspaper is currently uncertain.

Good luck and Best Wishes to Mr. Lutz on his new endeavors.
