Bob Norman has the farewell memo sent out to the newsroom by Senior Editor Mindy Marques.
A few names jumped out at me.
One being that of Georgia Tasker.
If some one's keeping a list of South Florida journalism icons, Georgia must be pretty close to the top.
She's been at the Herald for 40 years and has been the garden writer since 1979, writing elegantly about South Florida's gardens, ecology and all things green.
Another departure is that of Luis Rios, the Herald's director of photography.
Rios had only been at the Herald for 6 years, but his impact was felt last Monday when the Herald won yet another Pulitzer Prize for photography.
Knowledgeable insiders say it was Rios who prodded photographer Patrick Farrell to return to Haiti three times after his initial visit to that hurricane-ravaged country in September.
And it was also Rios - along with other photo editors - who fought with squeamish and vacillating higher ups, to get some of Farrell's more horrific pictures in the paper.
The resulting images shot by Farrell in his four trips earned him - and the Herald - a Pulitzer.
Rios's award? The loss of his job.
But fret not Herald readers; the paper still has a dance critic!
