How about doing something about "News to Go?"

The Joplin Globe is searching for a newspaper designer (isn't it about time), according to
The winning applicant (oh, wait, would that be the one who doesn't get the job) should have "good language skills and have a keen visual sense." Daily newspaper experience would be nice, the ad said, as well as a "degree in journalism or related field."
Hopefully, they can get someone to talk the powers-that-be at The Globe about getting rid of that news to go on the back page. What kind of idiot turns to the back of section A to find out what is on page one?

As a former JG employee, I can tell you they communicate poorly and then blame you when you don't do exactly what they expect. I imagine the copy desk is quite a lot like the news side.
