Kathryn S. Wenner, a former AJR associate editor, is a copy editor at the Washington Post.     


John Drescher switches Carolinas as he becomes managing editor of Raleigh, North Carolina's News & Observer. Drescher, 42, who moved to Raleigh when he was 10, started at the N&O right out of school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His new boss, Executive Editor Melanie Sill, was a fellow staffer on the school paper. Drescher became managing editor at the State in Columbia, South Carolina, in 2000, after 12 years at the Charlotte Observer, covering state government and climbing the ranks as an editor. As a reporter, he got to know former U.S. Sen. Terry Sanford, D-N.C., and two years ago published a book about Sanford's successful 1960 campaign for governor, "Triumph of Good Will: How Terry Sanford Beat a Champion of Segregation and Reshaped the South." The McClatchy-owned N&O has "always been a vigorous watchdog. I think North Carolina is better for that," Drescher says. "I think my job is just to keep the momentum up."
