  1. Karen Moreno was a class act and a brilliant player in Gannett's corporate structure for many years. I hope that she enjoys her well-deserved retirement.

  2. Karen Moreno and Frank O'Toole are two of the best in the CP. These are some hard working people who save Gannett a lot of money all the time. Does anyone know if this was her decision? I worked with her on a project a few years ago and she was smart and funny and driven to succeed. And she's really good about acknowledging others who work hard. I always heard she fought like a pit bull for her staff. I wish I had a boss like that. Hell, she could be snapped-up by any company. Best of luck to you Karen and you too Frank.

  6. Assuming that Italian comment was a joke but if not, the surname "Moreno" is of Spanish origin. Many African Americans have bloodlines that trace across all ethnicities.
