The weekend is almost upon us, the age old question burns for some of us still: What am I going to do with this copious amount of free time?

I’ve been covering news in this community for almost seven years, and one of my very favorite things about that experience has been the rapport I’ve had with all of you wonderful folks in this subreddit. A few weeks ago I realized it’s time for me to do whatever comes next for me, so I gave notice. Today is my last day writing for Fox 13’s website.

Social media can often bring out the worst in people (trust me I know better than most), but here more than anywhere else I feel like I was able to talk to folks in a frank and direct way, answering questions and following up on tips in the very best kind of symbiotic relationship.

This valley has become my home and it means a lot to me, and I’m so grateful for the help and encouragement from all of you as I’ve tried to bring our community the news. Whether you’ve sent me a tip, tagged me in a thread to ask for more information, or simply upvoted a story I’m involved with: Thank you!

I don’t know what I plan to do next, and I’m looking forward to taking some time off to figure that out, but I have no plans to leave home. I’ll be around here still, but I guess this is me saying I surrender my “verified reporter” tag.

I believe in all of you: individually and as a unit. People in news monitor places like these, and that informs coverage. Wield your influence with purpose and empathy.

As a member of the LDS church, I've never had coffee, but recently I found out I have liver disease, and the doctor literally prescribed coffee. 2-3 cups a day. So, I'm like, OK. I'll try it.

It's nasty. I mean, yuck. And the aftertaste.

But, since I am doing this for medicinal reasons (they even gave me a letter to give to my bishop, saying it was medically necessary), I am asking people for help. It seems like there might be som people in the SLC area who have gone from not drinking coffee to drinking coffee as an adult. So, well, how did you do it?

Any tips or advice for a first-time coffee drinker in their 60s would be appreciated.

EDIT: Wow. Thanks for all the great advice. You have all be so kind and helpful, and I really appreciate it.
