Letter from the Editor: Walking Up Everest

I’m a big John O’Meara fan. In my years as journalist, John was always very accommodating, always friendly, always really interesting. He’s humble and gracious, even though he has much to be proud of as one of Metro Parks’ most successful directors. Before his retirement in 2014, he more than doubled the size of Metro Parks during 16 years at the helm, adding a bunch of cool sites for Central Ohioans like me to enjoy. And I do.
