Perhaps it was fitting, or at least symbolic, that an earthquake hit the Southland Tuesday morning. At the Daily Pilot we had our own shake-up: Publisher Tom Johnson announced his resignation and there were layoffs (see story on A1). While it appears more devastating than a 5.4 quake, we are standing strong, moving forward, albeit with the help from the community. For so many years, the Daily Pilot, most definitely its sports section included, has provided the best in community coverage of the Newport-Mesa area.
