News of a sort

My second career (that at UTD) will end in the summer of 2018 with a last day on campus in May. My spouse, the other Dr. Montgomery, and I will leave north Texas for our home on Galveston Island. Shortly afterward, I will begin my third career as the director of a new paleontology museum in West Texas.
