This week marks the semi-retirement of Illinois Times business manager Brenda Matheis, who has held that position for the past 18 years. Brenda has done a little bit of everything around here to keep us organized and the bills paid, while managing our print circulation and human resources. We're happy she'll continue part time, handling books and billing. To say thank you our staff had a surprise Zoom-Bye-Ya gathering. It deteriorated into giggles after too many technical glitches, which included Brenda's phone echoing. Leaving her position, she said, is bittersweet, bittersweet, bittersweet. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO.
