2006-09-26

By Robert Niles: Theme Park Insider send its condolences to the Orlando Sentinel family upon the passing of business columnist Susan Strother Clarke yesterday, at age 47.

Clarke was a long-time reporter on the theme park beat in Orlando, and her work helped keep the public well informed as to what was happening the management offices of the local parks. Clarke suffered a heart attack late Sunday and never regained consciousness.

That was a great thing to do Robert!

That's tragic. Good job, and rest in peace.

Any idea who will cover the theme park beat now? It would be sad to lose that aspect of Orlando journalism.
