Dad was also "toying around" with the title KWICK KWIBS, Jr.

When we started our newspaper in 1991, my early columns were terrible, even worse than today. I brought the name with me when Ronda and I started The Gyp Hill Premiere.

If I paid 50 cents per mile it would be something like $7,500 a week in travel expenses, so hes out.

Maybe one day, like my father, hell return home from his service in the Navy and decide he wants to be in the business, but for now, hes got a job near a beach, also near a crazy dictator that were all keeping an eye on.

Many people over the years have asked me, where the name came from.

Now, the column name "KWICK KWIBS, Jr" by my dad, Ron Noland, came from his father (my Grandpa Bill).

Shes been one of my kids over the past year and it is sad to see her go, but Im happy for her.

Jessica Wright is moving to greener pastures - or hallways of chaos, either way you look at it.

Im super-proud of the work she did for us for almost a year now. I cant write about them, but she totally understands what Im talking about.

Next to me, shes probably one of the fastest at assimilating information for exportation (from her pen to your eyes). When I say shes like one of my own kids, I mean it and she has been. Breeann (AKA Bree) comes to us as green as green can be.

It dawned on me last week that my grandpa wrote KWICK KWIBS for 24 years. for 12 years and I have written KWIBS for over 27 years now. Possibly, there are over 3,000 columns with the name "KWIBS" on them.

So over the course of the last week, Jessica Wright has given Ronda and I notice that shell be leaving for a position at the grade school.

In 1946 my Grandpa Bill bought his first newspaper, the Logan Republican. Well, Ive read some of my grandpas and dads early columns and I am glad to say that I come from a long line of some terrible writers!
