Panpa Bulletin : August September 2007
Farewell Laurie -- after 47 years Laurie Coghlan, General Manager and Publisher of Hawke's Bay Newspapers, has announced his retirement. Laurie will finish on October 18, when he and wife Gina will return to Australia. His newspaper career spans 47 years. Laurie has been with APN since 1999 when he took up the role of general manager of Auckland Community Newspapers. He then moved to Christchurch to head up the Southern Region, encompassing Christchurch, Oamaru and the Wellington stable of newspapers. During this time he played a critical role in the development and launch of The Aucklander publications. In May last year, Laurie moved to Hawke's Bay to manage the operations of Hawke's Bay Newspapers. Before coming to New Zealand, Laurie worked in a variety of senior management roles with News Ltd in group opera- tions, including GM of the Manly Daily Group, and GM/ Publisher of the Leader Newspaper Group in Melbourne, which encompassed 38 titles. Laurie has been a very strong advocate of the power of classified advertising, and has been the convenor of the twice- yearly classified conference, which brings key staff together to discuss new ways of driving the business. PANPA extends their gratitude and best wishes to Laurie for the future. Some career highlights including PANPA involvement were: * member of PANPA since 1974 * member of Press Gang (Sydney) * member of the PANPA technical committee * pioneered, with Coates Inks, a 'no acidic' fountain solu- tion (Varn fountain solution) in the early days ('80s) of offset printing. * pioneered, with Collie/Cooke, 'non-rub' coldset ink, in the early days (80s) of offset printing * pioneered the first Compugraphic ONE system from the US (nine installations in New Zealand, two in Australia).

Before clarity can come, those feelings of yours have to be acknowledged and digested. Keep moving on. PISCES (Feb 19 -- Mar 20) Though you might be getting rattled by the sheer volume of ideas that are coming your way, shy away from are. As long as you know that, the pulse you are plugged into is basically good. Sudhir (by M.J.
