Veteran reporter Pat Stith is retiring from The News & Observer. The news comes as a relief to politicians across North Carolina, but readers will miss his investigative skills.
Copy editors may appreciate Stith's attention to detail, as described in the story announcing his departure. Any journalist would benefit from Stith's reporting tips, as he discusses here.
Farewell, Pat. You will be missed.
UPDATE: John Robinson at the Greensboro paper remembers Stith's role as a mentor.
