While of course Bill's passing leaves a huge space in our club I must take issue with Wilson's comment about "grave doubts " as to the future of the Brass Bell. We have been fortunate to have the best professional partners any one could ask for in Catalyst Communication and Digital 3 printing. These people have been with us for years and are not going anywhere. We have editors that have also been with us for years and they are also staying with us. Several weeks ago Bill contacted me, knowing he has sick and asked me to,be temporary managing editor in his absence. Of course I agreed because you do not argue with Bill. Since that time I have been fully involved with bringing myself up to,speed,with the rest of the team and the progress is good.
Let me assure all of you that we can and will proceed to produce the kind of magazine that you expect and deserve. The content is set for the issue to mail in December and nearly complete for issue one of next year with stories to spare.
Just to reiterate, we are on top of this. Wait and see
