I have been working at the Journal-World since March 2008. I started as a news copy editor and designer but switched to the sports department in July 2008. Before the Journal-World, I worked at the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune as a sports reporter and copy editor and the Topeka Capital-Journal as a copy editor and designer in both the sports and news departments.

Well, the cake didn’t end up as bad as I thought it would when I was in tears at 3 one morning in the Checkers’ checkout line.
I always think it’s funny when my mom asks me, “You didn’t make that from scratch, did you?” It’s normally when I bake something for a family gathering. I understand her concern. She doesn’t want me to go to too much trouble or stress myself out.
