Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

It’s a tad bit­ter­sweet in the of­fice this week. Re­porter John Boyn­ton re­cently made the move to Ra­dio New Zealand, and all of us are thrilled for his new ven­ture. But hav­ing an empty chair where he used to sit is a bit­ter pill to swal­low. Boynts is a fan­tas­tic jour­nal­ist, and his writ­ing skills, along with his quick wit and kind heart will be sorely missed. He has been a great friend to have in the of­fice, but we know he will be tak­ing his new role by storm. Last month re­porter Natalie Pol­ley re­turned af­ter be­ing on ma­ter­nity leave, which I had been cov­er­ing, af­ter I un­suc­cess­fully tried to fly the nest and was re­hired in Jan­uary. So while it was sad to see Boynts leave, it has al­lowed me to slot back in to the world of re­port­ing. I first set foot in Franklin County News in 2010 dur­ing an in­tern­ship, and af­ter seven years I still look for­ward to com­ing into the of­fice. Not many peo­ple can say they love their job and I’m so grate­ful I’m one of the lucky ones. All the best Boynts, go set the world on fire.
