    Where's Todd Henrichs going?

    And I cast my vote for Clark Grell.

    That's too bad. Todd Henrichs was great to deal with. Hopefully everything's OK.

    I was wondering the same thing about Todd, who is definitely great to work with, and did a quick search and it looks like he's now the city editor at the paper.

    How big is the staff?

    Todd took the city editor position within the Journal Star. More consistent hours. His immediate replacement came from within, but soon left for a development job.

    That's a lot bigger than I would have guessed, especially these days. That's impressive.

    I'm pulling for Clark Grell here.
    Good dude, a Bearcat (The Northwest Missouri State version) and I guess technically my first boss.

    I've heard this from some who work at the Journal-Star:

    Darnell Dickson will be the Journal Star's next sports editor.

    Darnell has been sports editor at the Provo Daily Herald, a Lee Enterprises newspaper, for nearly eight years. He has also been the BYU football beat writer and the BYU men's basketball columnist. He has been honored with a string of state and regional sports awards.
