2 comments on “Retired — for the moment

  1. Chris,

    I am constantly amazed how such small selfless acts have such a profoundly positive influence on people’s lives. I know for a fact that you perform such selfless acts for others on a regular basis, so much so that I suspect you are not even aware of it. I am personally thankful for your friendship and especially for your friendship with our mutual friends. I am fortunate to know you.

    I hope that your future endeavors bring you much more happiness than your past ones. Until we hit the dirt again.

    Your friend,


  2. Chris:
    My son, Chris Nicely, passed your last column on to me with the comment that you are a “fellow trail runner.” It’s a wonderful column that illustrates your journalistic skills and your character. I am 11 years retired from The Star and a 35-year career that began with mechanical typewriters, carbon copies and hot type and ended with devices like this one. It was the luck of perfect timing. The evolution of newspaper journalism has not been so kind to you, although the future of the profession is highly unpredictable these days. I wish you luck and blessings in this new chapter of your life. I hope it affords you the opportunity to use your writing talents because the world needs them.
    Steve Nicely
