Parksville Qualicum Beach News editor away eating dirt

Military training leaves associate editor at the editorial helm

Now you see him ... now you don’t.

Now you see him ... now you don’t.

Parksville Qualicum Beach News editor Steven Heywood is on leave as of today, and will be out of the office until July 29.

Heywood will be in the prairies for a month-long training phase with the Canadian Forces Reserves. He is a member of the Canadian Scottish Regiment, an infantry reserve unit, based in Comox, Nanaimo and Victoria.

“I look forward to getting my recommended daily dietary dose of soil,” said Heywood, who has been trying to get fit enough to keep up with 20-somethings this summer. If he survives, then he was successful in his preparations.

 

Stepping in for Heywood is assistant editor Neil Horner, who promises a softer-gentler regime. Of course, it’s only a month. How much trouble can he cause?
