Percy hired me, fresh out of college and graduation from CSU in 1976. I think I was their Girl Friday, selling ads, writing stories when Percy would let me, taking photos, developing photos and pasting ads. He also gave me money every week to get pastries at Karen's for the staff. I learned so much from Percy and admired him as a true journalist in every sense of the word. He started me out in my journalism career and that was the most exciting time for me. I am grateful to him and Carolyn and my thoughts are with his family and close friends.
