When I was managing editor of the Grand Haven Tribune, I was fortunate to be able to attend a weeklong newspaper training program in Reston, Virginia, conducted by the American Press Institute.

I was among about 50 editors and assistant editors who spent that one week learning and sharing ideas on how to produce a better newspaper. We all had folders full of ideas to help us be better editors. We left the training brimming with enthusiasm.
