  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.
