Longview Newspaper Man dead at 63

One of the longtime voices for the city of Longview has died. Longview News Journal editor Mike Hvezdos has died at the age of 63 after suffering a short illness.

Many in Longview will remember him for his * answer line* column in which he fielded questions and answers on everything from politics to Shakespeare. He began his career at 13 with the Journal as a paperboy, and by 10th grade he was a beat writer.

Funeral services are pending.
