I love the request about NOT "maligning others." There is no need of that at the local level.....or any level, including federal. For example, spending your day tweeting insults about a war hero who recently died of a brain tumor with a loving family still trying to get through his loss would NOT ever be OK.

It is the season of retirements (although they can happen anytime), each providing its beneficiary a different picture of the future. Ms. Nault’s essay provides readers an interesting “visual” of hers.
