Tracy's birthday boy

Er, birthday man.

Esteemed publisher emeritus Sam Matthews turned 76 years young today, and he's still going strong.

Sam's weekly column, Tracing Tracy Territory, is one of the mainstays of the Press' local coverage, and editing it is one of the highlights of my week on the copy desk.

He's a virtual encyclopedia of Tracy history — I'd wager no one in town knows more about the place than he does — and along with Google, he's the best resource we have as an editing team.

Here's wishing Sam many more happy returns.
