Velma retired from the station in April 2016 . She wrote this message to viewers who she served for more than 30 years.

As I close this chapter in my life, I look back and see a wonderful 30 year career at 13News Now. It has been a privilege to have a front row seat as the Peninsula evolved. Since making the decision to retire, I have taken some time to reflect on the various developments, events and milestones; there is a memory everywhere I turn! Leaving is bittersweet, but I'm looking forward to turning the next page. I will remain a resident of the Peninsula, so if you see me please say hello! I would enjoy reminiscing with you.

Your neighbor and Peninsula reporter,

Velma Scaife
