I'm going to step aside today and let Bill Bregar take center stage for Kickstart.
Bill joined the staff of Plastics News before its first print issue and died unexpectedly on April 5 of an apparent heart attack. He was 58.
Anyone who knew Bill knew he had a joke or a story for every occasion (not all of them fit for family trade newspapers). And when we started staff blogs on plasticsnews.com, Bill took advantage of his platform under the Heavy Metal name to share some of his wisdom, including a recent item on the importance of estate planning.
And now I let him share a few highlights one more time.
