Genita signed up to write the “Citizen’s Voice” column in the Lake Oswego Review, where I worked as an editor, providing the newspaper with a community member’s take on issues of the day. But her skills in putting together a column were unlike those of nearly every other “community member” I’ve encountered in many years since. Her column topics were clear and on target, her writing engaging and focused. She could punctuate, spell, and get it all done in time to meet her deadline. Editors love to work with writers like this.
