Terri came to Roane County to be closer to her family. She left her dream job in Sedona Arizona to spend more time with her mother and father as her dad battled cancer. While we are sad for the circumstances that brought her to us, we have been gladdened to have her in our community. She was not just an excellent award winning editor and writer but active in the community for many good causes in her spare time. We are proud to call Terri Likens a good friend and wish her the best in her new adventure. The Times Free Press is getting a good one!
