LOOSELEAF LAUREATE: Life has disappointments, even in good times

-A A +A
By Terri Likens, Editor

It was my father’s big day, his retirement from a long, successful career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the whole family was there for it.

The whole family except for me.

I was working for The Associated Press in Chicago at the time, and Dad’s retirement gala happened to coincide with a critical election in the Windy City. The AP news staff was told that under no circumstances were we to request time off that day, and so I dared not.

To this day, I regret not being there for my father’s shining moment in 1994.
