THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | JANUARY 9-15, 2019 2018 PHOTOS OF THE YEAR 3 One of the things I miss most about my new job as a newspaper owner and manager is that I don't get to take too many news photos anymore. It's too bad. I loved doing it from the time I had my first job as a photojour- nalist 41 years ago. Our paper is in very good hands, though. Robert Emerson, Charlie Lawrence and Bill Murphy do won- derful work for you each weekend and at many big events like graduations. I didn't know Charlie and Bill much before they worked here, but I'm glad both found their way to The Breeze. Bob Emerson, however, I knew. Back when I was younger and admiring The Providence Journal between my classes at Rhode Island College in the 1970s, The Journal had one of the best photojournalist staffs in the United States, and Bob was among the elite, winning contests as the best photojournalist in New England. He called me when he retired from WJAR-TV, and obviously, I jumped at the chance to have him with us. On the following pages are just some of the excellent work these three men provide each week. I'm grateful they are on our team.

I found Destiny Monteiro, 17, of Pawtucket, preparing her hair before her turn on the stage. • Tables • Chairs • Flatware • Cups • Plates • Linens • Glasses • Cafe Tables • Bar Stools • Games • Drink Machines • Cotton Candy Machines • & More!
