Hello from the new editor

Jeff has taken the Winslow Mail to a new level, and I hope to continue in that path. He will be greatly missed in the community, but is taking the next step in his career.

Most of you do not know me, so, let's start at the beginning. My name is Christyl Buckles, and I am from Holbrook. I was born in Holbrook, and minus a few short months in Pocatello, Id., lived there my whole life. I graduated from Holbrook High School in 1999. I have worked at numerous jobs, and for the past two have been reporting for the Holbrook Tribune-News.

My husband Brandon and I, along with our two girls, Kyah, 5 and Gracie, 2, have moved to Winslow. Brandon is the manager of the Movie Gallery.

When his store opened in May, we began talking about moving here, but it was not until the Mail called about taking Jeff's position that we made the leap.

It's not easy to start a new job, and move in the same week, but we have done it and things as starting to settle down. Life is getting back to normal.

I will do my best to continue what Jeff has started. I know how change is difficult, so I promise if I make changes to anything it will be gradually.

I hope to hear input along the way, and encourage anyone with news items to contact me at the Mail. My email address is
