Editorial: Trio is leaving big shoes to fill

Prescott Valley is undergoing a partial change of the "old guard," those who moved here to live and work, saw its potential, and helped to build it into the thriving community it is today.

Last week, the community lost two of those builders in former Police Chief Ed Seder and former Realtor Ken Renken, a Prescott Valley resident and community booster since 1972.

We published a story about Seder in last week's Tribune, and you can read about Renken's contributions in this issue. A member of the town's first appointed council, he was the recipient of the Chamber of Commerce Heritage Award in 2004 for his efforts in building Prescott Valley as we know it today.

Thankfully, we still have another member of that old guard with us, but she will serve in a different capacity in the future. Police Commander Laura Molinaro, Prescott Valley's first woman police officer, will retire this month. While Molinaro served most of her law enforcement career in Prescott Valley, perhaps she'll be best known for her contributions to Special Olympics, an involvement that she will happily continue for the foreseeable future.

Seder, Renken and Molinaro leave big shoes to fill in their chosen professions. We can certainly look to them for some of the qualities that helped to make Prescott Valley a great place to live.
