SunPost Soldiers On
Co-Publisher Kim Stark has chosen herself as the next Executive Editor and the paper relies on a stable of freelancers to get by. The 24 page issue starts off with a letter from Kim promising new features, and a redesigned website and a new blog (good idea!). Page 8 features a new column by Michael Sasser, the papers editor during its editorial's height, called "People In The Community You Should Know." It's a profile of a the director of early childhood education at a private school. Then a two column feature on the under-constructing New World Symphony's future home,a calendar with a total of 8 entries (all in large font with big pictures), John Hood's book column (still a decent read), a 100 word art article, Then a small piece about reverse mortgages. That's it.
Not a peep on the Miami Beach government. No hard news. No opinionated columns. At least the paper caries on in name, keeping any hopes of a return to glory alive.
