John Saltas first announced his "Replace John" contest back in July -- Saltas, the owner of Salt Lake City Weekly, invited readers to try their hand at his regular column. The winning piece by John Rasmuson is published in the Sept. 14 issue. His column begins: "Like skating backwards, taping sheetrock and composing limericks, replacing John Saltas ain’t as easy as it looks." Rasmuson's topic is, appropriately, advice on writing a column. Saltas isn't giving up his job just yet, but Rasmuson did win a $400 prize.
