The result is a smart, often sardonic take on life as seen through a just-graduated-from-high-school prism. Enid (Thora Birch)

My tenure here has been a whirlwind of change. Here's the latest: We will be launching the Sunday News-Press and Leader on Jan. 30. In the last two years, we've done quite a bit. We started a blog, The818Now.com , we redesigned the paper, upgraded and modernized our website, and on and on and on. Newspapers, and newspaper companies, can be very staid places. They can be institutions where things stay the same, changing and adapting only when forced. This is not one of those places.

Some people have noted, (mostly) kindly, that topics in this column vary widely. Sometimes it focuses on the newsroom, sometimes on happenings in our area, while other times it opines on life generally. This column is printed in both the Glendale News-Press and Burbank Leader. These papers together serve four very distinct areas: Burbank, Montrose, La Crescenta and Glendale proper. I live in Burbank, and have for nearly six years, but it would not be fair or proper to write only about Burbank.

The District 16 champions are one win away from qualifying for the Western Regionals in Washington. A good showing in that tournament would move the Burbank team on to the World Series in Oregon. Despite its success, the team might not be able to attend the regionals because of a lack of funds. The squad is looking for corporate and individual donations to help it keep playing.

My poor son. Day-in and day-out — with me. My staff members will tell you that can be pretty tough to take. I always seem to expect more. When they think they’ve given it their all, I ask for one more source, one more bit of information or a more active headline. A former reporter at the Glendale News-Press once claimed I wanted perfection from them. “Of course,” I responded. “What are you seeking, mediocrity?” And so I will not leave them, or you, high and dry. Yes, I am leaving sunny Southern California for the currently snowy city of Boston.
