The Key Peninsula News Publishing Board extends sincere appreciation to Ted Olinger for his excellent work as executive editor of the paper for nearly two years. His writing and editing skills, combined with solid administrative judgment, have given us a talented team. The volunteers and staff members consistently deliver a newspaper enjoyed and valued by the entire community. The new website, interactive community calendar and 40-year archive represent enduring gifts of Olinger’s talent and ability to inspire the same from others.
Even though his focus is now on other writing projects, he continues work on the archives and provides stories and editorial support.
“His guidance during the transition to our new editor is another testament to his commitment to our community, and our newspaper,” wrote Keith Axelsen, board vice president. “Thank you again, Ted, for a job extremely well done.”
