Editors' Notes

For the first time, an employee of The Slovak Spectator, past or present, welcomed a new addition to our world. On March 26, Jana Dorotková, a one-time associate editor but full-time contributor to your newspaper, gave birth to Ema, a baby girl. Like Momma, like baby, or so we hope. We can't wait to start training her in the ways of a journalist.

Continuing with new introductions, of a more linear nature is the debut of "Marketing in the Trenches," a monthly column designed to steer budding marketing and sales professionals through real-life corporate combat situations. We hope that you find the tips from our seasoned professional, Stewart Glickman, to be useful.
