Editor, The Times,

Since June, 1989, I have had the great privilege of serving as the Chief Magistrate Judge of Pierce County. While my decision to retire July 1 is bittersweet, I look forward to spending more time with my family.

I would like to thank the great people of Pierce County for your support over the past 33 years.

It has been my pleasure to serve you.
