Beth Hertz surgery went well
Beth Thomas Hertz, former page drawer and copy editor at the BJ, is doing well after surgery.
David Hertz, former BJ business editor and her husband, writes:
“This is David Hertz taking dictation. Beth asked me to share with everyone that her surgery went well. The surgeon removed a bone spur and the bursa sack and, fortunately, the rotator cuff was fine. The best possible outcome. Thank you for all your kind words. It means a lot. For now, she is resting comfortably thanks to pain medication and begins physical therapy next week.”
Dave left Ol’ Blue Walls in 2006 after 15 years to become vice president of Dix & Eaton, a Cleveland firm, in the media relations department. Before the BJ, he was at a Knight-Ridder paper in Boca Raton for five years.
Beth and Dave is the classic office romance. When they wed Oct. 23, 1933 in the Akron Civic Theater, a crowd from the BJ was there.
They live in Copley with their children, Alyssa and Josh.
