"I'm very happy that the Tribune accepted this piece, because it addresses a long-held 'pet peeve' of mine, said Tucibat. Also, as instructor for HCC's journalism classes, I feel obligated to do some writing myself, from time to time, just to keep my hand in the game."

The piece can be found on the papers web site here.

Tucibat, a life-long resident of the Thomson area, also serves as the advisor for the Chronicle, Highlands student newspaper.
