FORT MYERS, Fla - After a decade of doing feature stories, it's time to hang up the microphone.

I wanted to use this space to offer a public "thank you" to all the viewers I've met in person (or by phone) since 1998. Without fail, you have been more gracious, supportive and friendly than any feature reporter could ever wish for.

My only hope is that the stories I did gave you a reason to smile every now and then. My friends at WINK News cleared out some space in tonight's newscast to make room for a little retrospective.

I hope you enjoy it. And thank you again for all the wonderful memories.
