"For the first time we don't have an owner who's making story suggestions and occasionally writing a column about a favorite cause. But it's understood, more than ever before, that we'd better make a living with this," associate editor Jack Neely says of life under EW Scripps. "I don't mean to suggest that corporate ownership is better. I do miss boasting that we're locally owned, even when it seemed mainly a theoretical thing. But it's good, for the first time, to have dental insurance."
