LANG papers begin the inevitable consolidation - LA Observed

Carolina Garcia, the editor of the Daily News, will now be the executive editor for the Daily Breeze and the Press-Telegram in Long Beach as well. Breeze editor Toni Sciacqua becomes managing editor - digital for the group. Sue Schmitt, the editor & general manager of the Press-Telegram, has "decided not to remain as a full-time employee of the company as part of this transition." It's the next, big shoe to fall after yesterday's axing of the DN's features and food editors. In Northern California, the MediaNews papers have been largely merged into one product — and many expect this is the first step toward that occurring here.

I recently sent the Election Supervisors office a new list of addresses belonging to members who's ballots were returned as "undeliverable" by the post office due to errors on their excel program and the way the address information was input. I corrected all the errors and returned the corrected excel version on Thursday so ballots should be arriving as early as tomorrow. Be sure to send in your completed ballot as soon as possible to insure your vote is counted.
