News-Journal Editor Pat Rice to retire at year's end after 12 years at the newsroom's helm

After nearly 12 years as editor of The Daytona Beach News-Journal, Pat Rice is retiring at year’s end, closing a chapter in an award-winning 38-year journalism career. “I’ve just decided that I’m at a point in life that if I'm going to do anything else from a career standpoint, it’s the right time for me to do that,” said Rice, 64, who announced the decision to the paper’s newsroom staff earlier this week. “I’ve been the editor here for 12 years; that’s a long run for any editor anywhere and it just feels like the right time to make that move to go into something else.”
