1) Due to health concerns, I started the process of moving to Phoenix in November. 2) I let my supervisor at the Daily World know what was going on, but that I could continue to put out the North Coast News. Did so, through December. 3) Let the Daily World know that my move was permanent, but that I could return to Ocean Shores monthly and continue being a part of the North Coast News print edition and northcoastnews.com (the blog I launched way back in 2008) on a part-time basis. The proposal came from a combination of having all these stories about Ocean Shores still to cover, a sense of loyalty to readers who have been incredibly supportive (with the exception of those who hate me) and general fear over giving up the most fun for which I’ve ever been paid. 4) After giving my proposal serious consideration for approximately three (3) seconds, the Daily World say, “Naw. You’ve been great, please close the door firmly on your way out.” 5) tomscanlonsblog.com

Well as a property owner and current voter here, keep fighting City Hall. Now they can’t say you are out of line as the paper editor.
Tom I will miss your wonderful sense of satire. However the blog is a great idea, kind of reminds me of the starof the Berkeley Bard. Keep it up.
You left your post unattended, stopped replying to emails, and basically just simply stopped doing your job. You were canned as a result. Deal with it.
I only stopped answering my emails when I was “locked out” of access to it by Bill Crawford/The Daily World.
