'Stealing Cars With The Pros' is a collection of noir-themed nonfiction from Anthony Pigataro's time at OC Weekly and Maui Time.
Themes of violence and romance cast a dark pall over Hawaii in Small Island, a new novel by Maui Time editor Anthony Pignataro.
With little fanfare, the County of Maui has withdrawn the subpoena for all IP addresses in a 24-hour period of online commenters for an April Maui Time story.
Jacob Shafer has replaced Anthony Pignataro as the paper's editor, according to a press release. Shafer comes to Maui from Northern California, where he served as calendar editor and later staff writer for The Pacific Sun. "Jacob has a firm grasp of important environmental issues that are so critical to our delicate and precious market, an isolated island in the middle of the Pacific. He contributes a maturity level way beyond his years to this gift that we offer our community," says Maui Time publisher Tommy Russo.
His name is Dan Malone, and he won his Pulitzer in 1992 at the Dallas Morning News, reporting on abuses of power by Texas law enforcement officials. Malone joins an editorial staff headed by another ex-Morning News Pulitzer winner, Gayle Reaves. Meanwhile, ex-Houston Presser Anthony Mariani has accepted a position as the Weekly’s arts and entertainment editor.
Pittsburgh City Paper jumped on the chance to buy rival In Pittsburgh, says Publisher Michael Frischling. He promises City Paper will grow and improve now that the cross-town rival is gone. Meanwhile, few In Pittsburgh staffers have taken up City Paper's offer to interview.
