Nicole, thank you so much for your thorough and accurate reporting over the many years. You reported things that needed to be reported, in spite of the sometimes vicious attacks that were aimed at you - simply for telling the truth. Thank you, thank you for all you did. You will be missed. I hope that whomever takes your place on reporting things from the County has the determination to report the true story just as you did regardless of the political fire that it may draw. Best of luck to you moving forward!

Thank you for keeping the info moving and reporting what needed to be understood. Good luck on your new adventure.


Best wishes on your new venture Nicole!


Thank you Nicole - You were fearless on the difficult topics and added lightness to the less controversial issues. I enjoyed all our conversations to help you with stories. You will be missed and Smoke Signals is lucky to have you!
