No I'm not a kiss-up

April 15, 2010 - Karin Elton
Today’s blog is about our new editor, Per Peterson. We’ve (the newsroom) had kind of a rough couple years coping with the loss of Dana Yost as our beloved editor and then Rae Kruger was here only a year or so.

When Rae announced her resignation, I felt panic. But lo and behold, the transition between having an editor and not was painless — because of Per, who was the news editor--second in command. He just took the reins and I’m glad he was named as editor.

Per has only sniped at me one time in my 11 years here. One time. I think that is amazing. It was in the evening, during my first year here. He had probably been at work 10 hours. I don’t remember what the problem was or what he said, but my thought at the time was — “Man, I don’t need this and if this is the way it’s going to be, I’m outta here.” But then it wasn’t the way it was going to be because Per keeps his cool pretty much all the time. If anything, his voice gets softer under stress.

So, kudos to you Per, for a job well done! (And thanks for not yelling at us!)
