Endlessly curious, our editor, Vicki Hyatt savors her role at the paper and in the community.

When many people wake up on a Monday morning, it is with a heavy heart because they have to go to work.

For me, it is just the opposite. I can’t wait to get to the office because I know each day will provide at least one thing new and different that we can share with readers.

That’s kind of how things are in the news business. You just never know what is going to happen. Whether it's a foot-chase of a naked guy heard over the scanner or a wild animal sighting in a neighborhood, life is never dull in a newsroom.

Not every story turns out to be so exciting, but if we’re able to get the facts and set the record straight, even if it is just for a single reader, it’s been a good day.

Outside the newsroom, I enjoy playing with our grandchildren, Harper and Hudson, who will be turning 2 this week. I’m continually amazed at how much information toddlers can absorb and make it my mission to toss plenty of it their way.

I also like accompanying my husband, Rich, as he works around the farm. Please place a heavy emphasis on “accompany” as I grew up on a ranch in Montana and have no desire to become overly involved in the poopy end of the business.

We live a quiet life and barely leave the mountain where Rich and I sit on the porch and count our blessings at least weekly.
