Susan Reinhardt, former Citizen-Times columnist, "I love the people here. I feel like I've done a good job. I've helped with animal causes. I've helped people who have cancer get the money for their surgeries. I just feel like I made a difference in the 26 and a half years. And I'm really just going to miss all my, my readers."

"The Asheville Citizen-Times laid off eight people Wednesday as part of a workforce reduction at its parent company, Gannett.
