Why I Love Jack Rowell


Jack was at least ten years away from getting his wisdom teeth when he began taking pictures for the Herald, back when M. Dickey was a cub reporter. It's a good thing he loves to fly-fish or we might have lost him to Nashville or L.A. In December, he set up a photo shoot at the Randolph Senior Center and spent three days photographing the Hale Street Gang. The writers were pretty dubious about the shoot (it was my idea and they were too polite to say no), but Jack made us feel like rock stars! The writers fell in love with him. So then Jack began telling his famous friends about us, and pretty soon Steve Zind from Vermont Public Radio called. You can see Jack's pictures and hear Steve's report for Vermont Edition in the video below. (Be patient: There are several seconds of black before the video starts.)

What a wonderful idea and we are so lucky to have someone of Sara's skill and expertise to facilitate these writers.
I love the offerings so far so do keep up the sharing of your memories.
