Michael Wagar marks his one-year anniversary at the Nisqually Valley News (NVN) this week.
The Yelm Community Blog honors him for what he has done to transform his newspaper into one of fair reporting on all aspects of our community. We wish him well in the coming years of his tenure at the NVN helm!
He promised a newspaper providing “balance, honesty and respect” and has delivered, IMHO!
Congratulations Mr. Wagar on a fabulous first year.
