From Parade Magazine to the Streets of Unemployment – A Sign of the Times

Now it appears one of the top brass at the former Star-Bulletin has literally hit the streets in an attempt to find employment.

Nancy Christenson was laid off after working 12 years for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and was even featured in Parade Magazine in an article entitled “What Do People Make” back in 2002 where it was reported that she was making $56,000 per year as a copy editor for a local paper.
