Between the Lines
Here at U.S. 1 newspaper our number one desktop publishing
guy, the guy who clicks print on every page that you find in the newspaper,
knows neither PageMaker nor Quark. Instead he knows Ventura, a piece
of DTP software that had its moment in the sun back in the late 1980s.
Until now that hasn’t been a problem — the DTP guy is also the
boss. But now, with the advent of color photographs on the cover and
on some inside pages, the printer wants those pages electronically,
not just as old-fashioned paper mechanicals. Guess what: Ventura can’t
handle it; Quark or PageMaker are the software choices. Fortunately
Kathleen McBride Sisack has kept up to date with the software —
now she bails out the boss when the cover has to be prepared.
We suspect that our little training lapse is being repeated in offices
across our readership area. And that’s why we have turned over a considerable
amount of editorial space in this issue to the many sources of continuing
education vital, not only to the careers of workers, but also to the
ongoing success of their companies.
Beginning on page 8, Kathleen McGinn Spring has compiled an array
of educational opportunities ranging from MBAs to certificate programs
to old-fashioned night courses. "Keeping up" with change in
the workplace has become a growth industry. While Spring reports that
many of the pricey executive MBA programs have downsized because employers
have tightened up their budgets, other programs are drawing more students
— many of them retooling their careers in the face of corporate
Here at U.S. 1 we have usually been well behind the curve with any
new software. But, as a careful reading of our Continuing Education
issue, reveals, the training game goes far beyond computers: Management
training, massage therapy certificates, medical transcription, accounting,
building trades — you name it and someone will teach you how to
do it or how to do it better.
A lack of training surely hinders organizational productivity? But
sometimes it’s hard enough to get away to take a vacation, let alone
a training day.
Please note the following correction to the August 14,
2002 issue. In the article "Women’s Equality and Baseball,"
NOW is noted as the "National Organization Of Women." As a
NOW member since 1979, I can see that we are still not being listened
to. The correct title should be: National Organization For Women.
Perhaps the subject of this story should have given your editor a
NOW membership form to fill out and then he/she could have finally
gotten it right!
some members of Grace Little’s Amazing 609 Band were misspelled. Band
members are Clyde Funchess, bass; Jay Wade, drums; Norman Williams,
keyboards; Joel Smith, keyboards; Roy Richardson, saxophone; Michael
Gist, percussion; Troy Cain, timbales; and Devora Wise on vocals.
