We're sorry we didn't learn of this earlier, but Jolyn Resnick -- the feisty Wilkes-Barre City Hall reporter who covered Mayor Tom McGroarty for the Times Leader -- has died of pancreatic cancer. Resnick was at the TL from 1999 to 2002 and covered City Hall from 2000 to 2002. Barely a year after being named the paper's top reporter, she was demoted suddenly and was forced out in October 2002 shortly before her cancer diagnosis. The obituary includes memorial information. Condolences.
