Kurt Olson, chief copy editor 2011-2013

In a world of dangling modifiers, misused words, Associated Press Style and grammar problems, Kurt Olson is a coach. Not only does he assist writers with content, but he also considers how to improve the ability of the writers that he works with and the copy desk that he manages. His contagious, upbeat attitude propels the newsroom forward even during long, tiring days or periods when staff morale seems low. For this reason, Kurt Olson is our staff of the week. Thank you, Mr. Olson, thank you.
