This is my final post on the Triangle Grammar Guide. I was among the copy editors and designers at The News & Observer whose jobs were eliminated in Raleigh. I, like the rest, was given the choice of leaving the company or accepting a job in a new central publishing center at the Charlotte Observer. I chose to continue to practice my profession, and I will begin work at the publishing center on Aug. 22.
The publishing center will take over the design and copy editing for the Charlotte Observer, The News & Observer, the Rock Hill (S.C.) Herald and all the community papers produced by the Observer and The N&O. The center is ramping up and is expected to be fully operating by the middle of September.
For the time being, I will continue the Grammar Guide at my personal blog site. I hope to have exciting news there in a few weeks about a new permanent home for the Grammar Guide.
