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.Click here for the full announcement.
Again, because it bears repeating: Thank you, Roosevelt Island.
