Best Of Luck Howie
For more than 11 years Howard Schwach sat at the helm of the editorial post of The Wave. He covered all the major events in Rockaway and some minor ones as well. You saw him at the St. Patrick Day Parade, and little league games. He was out on the street after 9/11 and raced to the plane crash in Belle Harbor. He covered car crashes, fires, civic meetings, contests, street namings, festivals, murders and more. He was the pulse and voice of the people of Rockaway, welcomed every story that came across the transom and listened to all and gave every story equal importance. He did what every good journalist is expected to do: he kept us informed. Howie has decided to move on to a new gig. We wish him the best of luck and know he will give it his all. Thank you, Howie and good luck.
