Dynamo Departs

On Wednesday, we said goodbye to News Editor Carole Ferguson, who's heading to Redding (hey, that rhymes) to be managing editor. There were speeches, laughs and lots of stories. Carole displayed a schedule that showed there were 26 people on the Universal Desk when she first started at The Star. With her departure, we are down to 17. Of course, you could say we are down to 14, since she did the work of four people. The desk presented Carole with a lovely parting gift: a basket chock-full of goodies that represent the grand county she is leaving: Ventura County. She received county fair souvenirs, a framed photo, a Star newsrack piggy bank, even a postcard of Camarillo. At the end of the night, Amanda presented Carole with a going-away page.
