First we lose Elaine Shein from the Capital Press. Then we lose Gordon Smith from the Senate. Now we're losing George Murdock from the East Oregonian. All are losses for Eastern Oregon, and agriculture.
George added a new dimension to the EO that will be sorely missed. I can only echo what Wes Grilley said. George reported accurately, intelligently and fairly. He exhibited a sense of humor and related experiences from the world around all of us.
It's obvious family, with all its ramifications, is important in George's world, and he reminded each of us just how important it should be to each of us. I wish him well in his new venture.
