How about doing something about "News to Go?"

The Joplin Globe is searching for a newspaper designer (isn't it about time), according to Journalismjobs.com
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.
