For those of you that read the fine print at the end of each newsletter issue, Mary Overmier's name will be familiar to you. She has been the editor of the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Newsletter for many years. She is the one that has cleaned up the authors' writing so that it is more concise and understandable to you. In recent years, she has also designed each issue and posted them on the Web site. This is the last issue that she will assist with before her retirement.
In addition to editing this newsletter, she has also edited many of the Home, Yard & Garden Pest Guide editions, Pesticide Applicator Training manuals, and various other Extension and College of ACES publications from the University of Illinois that have been useful to you.
Mary is not going to be relaxing much in her retirement, she is pursuing a graduate degree at the U of I. We wish the best of luck to her. Thank you for a job well done.
