I don't know who belongs to the group "everyone in the design industry" referenced by Jyrko in a previous comment, but I know Cheryl Karnes and her professional background. Jyrko just doesn't have the facts right. Cheryl began working in the newspaper industry while still in college, starting at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. She began as a typesetter, became shift lead, eventually editing religion columns and contributing stringer copy to the entertainment department as well as creating type specification for leading advertisers, including the now-defunct major department stores May Company and Broadway. She worked at The Evening Outlook in Santa Monica and The Daily Breeze in Torrance, both in Southern California, both community newspapers similar to The Times-Standard. She worked as a writer, editor and production designer for The Palos Verdes Review and Long Beach Review magazines, monthly publications in Southern California. As in independent graphic designer, writer and editor she has created editorial copy, advertising, annual reports yearbooks and newsletters for a host of clients, including a leading software designer in San Pedro, California, and the University of Southern California. She designed and edited newsletters and promotional copy for Arcata-based Internews covering journalism and information technology endeavors in eastern Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia. I know this because I work in the technology side of the printing industry and for over 25 years Cheryl has been a frequent contact when I'm called in to troubleshoot equipment and network problems. Her skills in journalism, design and print technology are remarkable. The content and design quality at The Times-Standard has improved since she became copy chief. They are lucky to have her.
