Veteran Investigative Reporter Les Zaitz Retires

Les Zaitz started working for the Oregonian when wire service printers still went clickety-clack all day and all night. 

He will finish his career with the Oregonian at a time when investigators spend much of their time poring over emails (when public agencies release them). 

Zaitz covered the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, the arrival (and departure) of the Rajneeshes in Eastern Oregon, and the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover, to name just few.  He plans to retire in a few weeks, and to visit with us before he does so.
