Newspaper division President Bob Dickey's pick this week for new Coloradoan publisher reflects the growing influence of Louisville uber-Publisher Denise Ivey, a reader tells me, in an e-mail that points to one other Ivey protegee who also got a top job. "Looks like a continuing purging of the innovative initiative of Sue Clark-Johnson for the bean-counting metrics of Dickey -- which has been Ivey's claim to success,'' the reader tells me in an e-mail. "Suggests a much more corporate, bottom-line driven initiative by Dickey than the innovation that SCJ was trying to push."

Ivey was named president of the Mid-South Group in early 2006; some critics have waggishly tagged her Poison Ivey.
