Why we do what we do (and how)

Welcome to our newest online column, "Ask the Editors." Five S-R editors will field questions from readers about our journalistic practices, ethics and daily operations. You can ask a specific editor, or submit general questions. Below are short biographies of each of the editors. And here are our areas of responsibility:

Steve Smith, editor; overall news policies and philosophy.
Gary Graham, managing editor; day-to-day news decisions of the printed newspaper.
Ken Sands, managing editor of online and new media; overall news policies and day-to-day decisions of the newspaper's online edition.
Doug Floyd, editorial page editor; the newspaper's opinion pages.
Carla Savalli, city editor; the local news report.

We will attempt to answer as many questions as we can, as quickly as possible. So, ask away! (Click on one of the names above to send an e-mail question to an editor.)
