This week has been very busy, likely indicative of what the entire budget season will be like. I went to two budget hearings, and then I headed to Concord for the pre-hearing for Laidlaw’s SEC review. While I was in my car on the way down my editor called to tell me that Mike Gaydo, the sports reporter for the Reporter for the last four decades, died the night before.
There are people out there who read the paper just for his stories. He wrote more than the paper could handle, covering every team in the region. His dedication will be missed. If you have any memories or reflections of Mike feel free to post them in the comments. The Reporter misses you already, Mike, as does Berlin, I’m sure.

A sad day indeed. I had Mr. Gaydo as a teacher during my freshman year at BHS. He taught NH History and he was very knowledgeable. He also was kind enough to send my family photos that he took of me during various sporting events that I participated in during my time at BHS. His coverage of sports here in Berlin was unparalleled. He truly was a first class individual and will be sorely missed.
I’m writing this from Keene. Mike was a great friend to me and my family. He was loved by everyone in this part of NH. We had a great time when ever we went to Berlin to this parties. He will be missed.
