This brings back memories, Dylan. My late Father and Grandfather worked for the Citizen (later, TNI) for decades. I grew up in the old building on North Stone Avenue and explored every corner I could sneak into—except for the abandoned stairwell that was too dangerous to use. My Grandfather operated the first Linotype machine, number 1, just inside the entrance to the composing room. My Dad was a typesetter and foreman. I think I have ink in my blood. My first job was in the old building, a part-time gig while I was still in high school. Later on, when I was working in radio, I did live local newscasts from the Citizen newsroom every weekday morning on KTUC. Sadly, local media is a shadow of what it once was. - Mike Tully
