Tanya Canino, R.I.P.

This is to mark the death of Tanya Canino (1960-2016).  Tanya and I overlapped (2007-2008) as editor and office manager, respectively, for a tumultuous year at The North Lake Tahoe Bonanza.  She was stricken with cancer in 2008, and went on to teach journalism at Sierra Nevada College.  The cancer returned and finally took her on September 9.  Here are some links:

Tanya was a very professional journalist, as all the tributes testify, but what I will stress here was her calmness, humor, and equability while an institution went into a (to no small extent self-inflicted) near-death spiral, and she then faced her own crisis.  Lux perpetua luceat ei.
