Kay Davis, the Editor of our Lakeside Living column for the past three years, has decided to move on to other challenges. Her cheerful attitude and professional manner has long made her a favorite with both the public as well as her colleagues here at the Ojo. Moreover, Kay has always been willing to take on additional assignments. This past year she wrote and took the pictures for our Christmas layout on the orphanages in our area. She also did a wonderful job in handling the more recent spread on the Lakeside Community Awards ceremony. Kay Davis is truly one of those ex-pats who have made our beloved community a better place to live in. We will miss her.
Our luck, however, is holding fast because we have found a wonderful replacement for Kay. For those who do not know Shelley Edson (but soon will!), the following might be of interest: Shelley’s love affair with Mexico started in the 1970s, when you could still take a passenger train from the US border all the way to Merida. When it came time to retire in late 2008, Lakeside was an easy choice with its great expat infrastructure. Prior to retirement, Shelley worked at IBM, starting in the late 1960s with computers that are now affectionately referred to as “dinosaurs.” Twenty-five years later, she ventured into technical writing and finally internet retail sales for ten years.
