The Hilltop Herald says good - bye
Commentary by Marilyn Haas

This is the last issue of the Hilltop Herald cornmunity newspaper.
Over the past eleven years, theHilltopHerald has been an integral and vital addition to the Wildflecken community as the prirnary source of community information. From publicizing community news and events to covering life in Wildflecken during the deployrnent to Desert Storm, the Hilltop Herald has been here to serve the community and support the command.
The Hilltop Herald newspaper ends, of course, because of the closure of the Wildflecken Training Area and community, but it is because of the current command and the commands that have gone before that the Hilltop Herald has remained alive. Many times there was uncertainty if the newspaper would continue through the next fiscal year because of money constraints and considerations. But the newspaper and the community won their battles and the Hilltop Herald has been able to rernain until the end. To all of you who fought for this publication's survival, thank you. Just for a little history, the Hilltop Herald got its name by a "Name the Newspaper" contest which was sponsored by Morale Support Activities. Beverly K. Duncan took the $100 prize for her suggestion and the Hilltop Herald's first publication was December 23, 1983.
This newspaper staff of one, who joins the ranks of many editors and writers who came before her, thanks former Wildflecken Training Area Commander Col. Thomas O. Plant, former 283d Base Support Battalion commander Lt. Col. Vicente C. Ogilvie, Public Affairs Officer Ulla Lucero, Training Times newspaper editor Renee Bozeman, the entire community and all the contributors who have helped to make the Hilltop Herald "the best little newspaper on the Rock." Farewell.
