Inside SDJW/ Staff Box

It takes a lot of talented people to produce a newspaper, as the images under the masthead above demonstrates. We don't have pictures of our two Lifestyles guest writers, Sara Gold and Gali Pialkoff, but 12 other contributors to today's issue were, from left, editor Donald H. Harrison, Ira Sharkansky, Barry Rubin, Shoshana Bryen, Lawrence Baron, Laurel Corona, Carol Davis, Cynthia Citron, David Amos, Hal Wingard z"l, Ethel Hofman and assistant editor Gail Umeham. We'd love to expand our volunteer staff, so please consider joining us. Call Harrison at (619) 265-0808.


This issue is dedicated with Happy Birthday wishes to Congressman Bob Filner, who turns 67 on September 4.
