Thank You Grayslake!

It's been a wonderful first four months serving as your local editor. I can't wait to see what's ahead in the new year!

As 2012 is coming to a close, today marks my four-month anniversary as your Grayslake Patch local editor.

It's a relatively short time, but it feels as though I've been here much longer. That's because I enjoy this job so much, and I hope you, the readers, have enjoyed what you've seen and read on the Grayslake Patch this year.

My goal is to provide you with coverage that is interesting, informative and relevant to your lives as Grayslake residents.

I can't say I wasn't kept busy. We've had a lot to talk about in my first four months, from the home invasion and the 2012 elections to the business closings and the looming teacher strike in District 46.

I'm ready for the new year and hope you are as curious as I am to see what develops in Grayslake. You can be sure I will always do my best to keep you informed and bring you the news before anyone else.

So thank you, Grayslake, for being the best community to work for!

I welcome your story ideas, photo submissions and suggestions for improvement. Contact me at angela.sykora@patch.com or at (847) 643-6001.
