‘Success is an attitude-- get yours right

By Fred Arnold

In my formative years as a community journalist I learned a lot from my mentor, former Telescope publisher Merle Miller. Merle was always lecturing me about something or another.

Or so I thought. What I thought of as heavy handed, Merle told me in later years, was just his way of giving me an education. Life’s lessons about journalism, community and being a good citizen. During that mentoring process Merle came into my office one day and gave me a placard. It was very old and read simply: “Success is an attitude... get yours right.” I still have it today carefully kept in a file where I have things that mean a great deal to me. I was reminded of that placard twice over the past weekend.
