Before I sign off, I want to bid Joe Abraham a fond farewell. Joe, SC Democrat editor for the last seven years, has been a professional, fair and wonderful person to work with managing our community columns. He, along with Fred Stabbert, Barbara Matos and staff assisted the Bethel Business Association’s production of the ‘award-winning’ BBA BETHEL GUIDE the last few years and made the work a pleasure. Joe deserves much credit for the survival of our local, honest ‘small-town newspaper’ in this day and age. He moves upstate into communications at SUNY Polytechnic Institute and we wish him all the best. Suz and ‘Trouble makin’ Steve’ will miss you!                                                                                    Suz sez, “It’s Spring break, baby!”
