Staffbox | Tribune & Deseret News Christmas Gifts 

What Christmas gift, or wish, would you send to your favorite Salt Lake Tribune or Deseret News employee?n

n

n

Jamie Gadette: To the Trib’s Heather May and Rosemary Winters: “Good for one martini night with Jamie and Brandon” certificates.

n

n

Holly Mullen: I wish every employee at every newspaper a nice Christmas bonus (though I know that’s a pipe dream) because they help keep the First Amendment holy.

n

n

Bryan Bale: Great idea. I should send some CDs of Kairo by Night music to the D-News’ Courtney Sargent, the photographer behind a very nicely done slide show of photos from Meeting of the Tribes at the Masonic Temple on Dec. 6. I’m pleasantly surprised that the News presented belly dancing in such a positive light.

n

Ted Scheffler: Being one of the few local “old school” food writers still standing, I’d send The D-News’ Valerie Phillips (and me) a Christmas wish that we’re both still employed this time next year!

n

n

Brandon Burt: A wish that I hadn’t flaked on that get-together at the Pie with Heather May and Robert Gehrke a few months back, and another wish that, one day soon, people will rediscover the joys of reading.

n

n

Paula Saltas: I’d like to send them all a gift subscription to the Nephi Times-News, Utah’s only real newspaper.

n

n

Brookelle Gaztambide: I would give a case of wine to Lisa Carricaburu, the Trib’s assistant managing editor. She works her butt off and I’m sure MediaNews doesn’t recognize it.

n

Jennifer Nixon: Good luck and good cheer in the New Year.

n

n

Monica Sorensen: “Merry Christmas! Sorry I’ve never read your paper and probably never will.”

n

n

Derek Carlisle: I would wish the gift of all Web and TV media becoming useless; therefore, leaving only us paper folk to engage in a competitive race to improve on the true form of media, the written word.

n

n

Jerre Wroble: I will send virtual drinks on Facebook to anyone who requests. Who knows what 2009 will bring?

n

n

Jeremiah Smith: A bottle of Champagne, a box of tissues and a card that reads, “Thanks for the memories.” tttt
