He had one supreme purpose, that of searching for the usual and the unusual in news happenings. He had a keen sense of integrity for truth and fairness. R. D. Maney developed a deep love and concern for Tipton and the surrounding area. He cared about our city government, the law enforcement, community involvement and very importantly,. the youth of our county. One could write endlessly of the feelings Mr. Maney expressed concerning daily developments, locally, state-wide and nationally. As time would have it, the years crept up all too fast and the hour has arrived to. bid adieu to a swell Journalist. In his column Friday, Mr. Maney slowly and perhaps reluctantly added -30- to his Round Town.. The symbol has a special significance to members of the news media. It spells the end of a story or era. But many times, the whole story is not printed for there is no end to the dedication and desire of a newsman to remain a part of the news media. It is rather built into one to the point of. almost life and breath itself. \The challenge, the adventure, the curiosity never really leaves after one has become a part of reporting and writing. The opportunity to publish may be gone but the intrigue and excitement remains. . Members.of TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE allowed a tear or "two R. D.

Mr. Maney'announced his retirement and plans to leave in the near future for a warmer climate. He leaves behind, a staff that loved him, learned from his experience, grew from his constant encouragement and confidence. He had become a personal friend to each of the staff members, taking on their problems and helping them through sorrows and tragedies as well as sharing the happy times in life. He will be sadly missed ... the warm smile .. -.: the gleam in his eye . . . the friendly handclasp will forever be a fond memory. So as we say farewell to the "chief" we will not add the -30- for we of the staff will forever strive to continue the work started by this dedicated man in the hopes of seeing many of his hopes and dreams for Tipton fulfilled in the years ahead. And to you, Mr. Maney, "thanks for all you have done for each of us ; ... and God Bless!" Hit and Run Tipton City Police reported a hit and run accident in the 300 block of. West Jefferson Friday.
