    THERE ARE MANY BITS OF WISDOM Ive gleaned from my time working for Yakima magazine. But perhaps none made more of an impact on me than the advice I received on one of my fi rst days on the job.

    That bit of advice was and I am paraphrasing here Dont mess it up.

    In certain circles, the identity of the person who gave me this nugget of wisdom will be immediately known. Nonetheless, al-low me to interpret the meaning: 1) Work hard, 2) What you do is worthwhile, and 3) Others depend on you. But most impor-tant: Dont take success for granted.

    It ranks up there with some of the best advice Ive ever re-ceived.

    I share this story with you because this is my last issue as coordinator for Yakima magazine. And though I will miss being such an active part of the magazine, Ive found that kids grow up far too fast, and its time to begin writing more of my own family stories. I am very happy, however, to pass the baton to the talented Jill St. George, who has collaborated with Yakima magazine in the past.

    So thank you to all the locals who have shared windows into their lives and to our readers who have made the magazine successful I am forever grateful. Keep up the good work. It really does make a diff er-ence. And to Jill, good luck. I have no doubt you will do an amazing job. I hope you are able to enjoy every moment of the sometimes hectic, often inspiring task of telling the stories of our hometown. I know I have. And, as this advice served me so well, I pass it on to you: Dont mess it up.

    Hope to see you out there, Yakima!

    IIIVE SAVED, I guess out of a sense of pos-terity, my to-do list from mid-summer 2009. On it, one of the bullet points is hire Yakima writer. It sounds so simple.It wasnt simple at all, of course, but Heather Caro made it a whole lot easier. Heather is as much a part of Yakimamagazine as those of us at the Yakima Herald-Republic who dreamed it up three years ago. When we developed Yakimafrom mere thoughts/hopes/dreams into a full-fl edged publication, we couldnt have predicted the work, the stress or the

    satisfaction. We didnt know we were in for long nights, absurd photo shoots and even crazier plots for future features.

    We also didnt know what a true joy the process and working with Heather would become. Heathers passion and creativity have shown on these pages, issue after issue. Aside from that, her humor and integrity have made her just plain fun to work with. Well miss that.

    But turning to the future we happily welcome new writer and coordinator Jill St. George. Jill is probably best-known for her Yakima Girl blog, but now she will de-

    vote considerable talent to this magazine and to shining a light on what makes Yakima so special.

    As always, if you have story ideas, thoughts on how we can make the maga-zine better, or just want to drop us a line, email us at letters@yakimamagazine.com. You can also email me directly at rbeckett@yakimamagazine.com or Jill at jstgeorge@yakimamagazine.com. We want to hear from you! After all, youre what Yakima magazine is all about.
