Regular readers will notice something missing in this issue—the byline of John Schaffner. After four-plus years with Reporter Newspapers, starting as the founding editor, John has decided to “move on and try something new.”

John is a veteran journalist. His career spans editor stints at big city dailies and smaller community papers like this one. Even after more than 40 years in the business, he never tires of following or filing a good story.

John made a significant contribution to the growth of Reporter Newspapers—especially our Buckhead Reporter—and his efforts will be missed.
