    God be with you, and his strength heal you fast. The world needs your stories and words to keep us and the world up to speed about a great living area of St Joseph County. When God made the Ice Glaciers and stop in St Joseph County, he had the idea to make a part of heaven here.

    I check your site every day.
    You have made a home online and your work–gathering, filtering, condensing–matters.
    If you can return, I look forward to your continued career here.
    If you cannot, it’s clear that having a news “net” for this county has been valuable.

    Bruce Snook symbolizes everything good in the world of journalism. It’s not too well known, but there is a code of ethics called the ‘Journalist’s Creed’ and this is Bruce. It says in part: “I believe that the journalism which succeeds the best-and best deserves success-fears God and honors man; is stoutly independent; unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power; constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of the privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance, and as far as law, an honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship, is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.”

  24. Michelle McNamara
