Richard moved to Jacksonville this past Friday and started his new job at the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Yesterday he got (I think) his first article published, about job cuts by CSX at its Jacksonville headquarters.
Richard will be on the business desk and also will be doing some investigative reporting. He lives in an apartment in the Riverside Avondale neighborhood, which Kish says is a charming and historic area. It must be, because it has its own Riverside Avondale Preservation society and website. It’s close to the St. Johns River and has pretty areas on the waterfront, many jogging options, and some good restaurants. And today, when a cold snap means that Columbus will be lucky to hit a high of 43 degrees, Jacksonville’s high temperature is forecast to be 79 degrees and sunny.
It’s always interesting to move to a new place and learn about what is has to offer. We’ll be eagerly following Richard’s reporting and learning about this new place as he does, too.
