    I’ve looked forward to Kent’s columns for those many years especially the political ones.  Good luck and God Bless!

    Kudos to you, Kent,  for years of blessing us with your wit and wisdom.  May God bless you in your full retirement, as you enjoy the serenity and fresh air in “The County.”

    As a relative newcomer to the ranks of your readers, Kent, I’ve come to appreciate your weekly columns, and will greatly miss their sudden termination. Thank you,”Old Dawg,” for becoming such an anticipated part of my weekends over these past few years.

    In this Computer Age, although you’ve dipped your metaphorical pen into the proverbial inkwell for the last weekly time, I’m hoping that your release from deadline pressures will free the thoughts that are bound to keep buzzing around in your head to emerge as occasional columns to assuage readers’ withdrawal.

    As for reporters traditionally signaling the end of their stories by writing “-30-” below the last typewritten line on the final page of their copy, may I suggest in your case the the biblical Number 7? In the Scriptures the Number 7 is used repeatedly to symbollize “completion,” “perfection,” etc., the finale to things well done.

    Go with God, Kent Ward….

    It has been an honor to be allowed the privilege of reading this column.  Kent Ward has been a stalwart observer of the human condition and has the profound gift of being able to see humor in all events large and small.  His stories are not just of humanity but of his unique background which has enabled him to perform this symphony of clarity which he has so expertly tendered to his readers over the years.  For this, I for one, shall remain forever thankful to have been one of his readers and shall never forget his unique abilities.  Thank you , once again, for sharing your distinguished career with us, the readers.
