Veteran capital reporter Dave Ammons of The Associated Press will leave his post after 37 years to take a job with Secretary of State Sam Reed. Ammons began his stint in Olympia in the summer of 1971. He just came in to tell us the news.
I'm stunned because it is hard to imagine this place without Dave. He is the "good Dave" that keeps the world in balance. He said the decision was a hard one to make. It'll be tough for those who can't rely on his institutional memory and constant good humor and positive attitude.
More later, before he makes the jump. But good luck to Dave in his new job as Reed's communications director.

And here's a column I wrote about him in 2001.
