Gossett had a real nose for news

To the editor:

This is a salute to Dave Gossett, a true reporter’s reporter. His informative, consistent and well-written stories will be missed in the valley. Possessing a true nose for news, Dave was ever competitive in ferreting out the story. He was dogged in his approach and was respected in the numerous venues he covered. It was a privilege to work in the field of journalism with Dave and a pleasure to read his work. Dave understood the media’s responsibility to report the news responsibly.
