[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E854] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN RECOGNITION OF THE CAREER AND SERVICE OF NORTH BALTIMORE'S BONNIE KNAGGS ______ HON. ROBERT E. LATTA of ohio in the house of representatives Friday, June 15, 2018 Mr. LATTA. Mr. Speaker, I want to recognize the commitment and dedication of longtime reporter and editor, Bonnie Knaggs, who recently retired as editor of the North Baltimore News. Bonnie has dedicated more than half of her life to reporting the news and has done a wonderful job serving the North Baltimore community. A Bloom Township native and graduate of North Baltimore High School, Bonnie has been a village resident for 80 years. What initially began as a hobby taking picture out of her apartment windows soon transitioned into a career in newspapers. In 1959, Bonnie started work at North Baltimore News selling newspaper subscriptions before being named editor just six years later. Throughout her decades-long career, Bonnie has served as a bookkeeper, photographer, and reporter. Her work as editor for the newspaper helped ensure that residents could stay up-to-date on what was happening in their community. Bonnie helped cover some of the most important moments in her community including the installation of the first traffic lights and a massive fire at the Trout furniture building downtown. I want to thank her for her years of service to North Baltimore and wish her all the best in her well-earned retirement. ____________________
