Danna is a smart ass and requires plenty of editorial supervision. Danna is also the editor of Kamloops Business magazine - seriously, she has a real job.
Mel is a former Kamloops mayor and school board chair who continues to serve on several community committees. In his spare time, he is a home renovator and hobby farmer. The former editor of The Daily News continues to write his Armchair Mayor column once a week and maintains a blog at www.armchairmayor.wordpress.com.
