What a loss to the county that Roger Piantadosi will no longer be at the helm of the Rappahannock News! His gracious letter in the last edition [“So long; keep in touch,” Dec. 24] exemplifies the reasons. He brought excellence in coverage to all aspects of county goings-on. We will not see the likes of him again. It helps that he will continue to contribute. We can only hope that that contribution will be substantial. Thanks, Roger, for these last five years.
