Former State newspaper education reporter (and now New York attorney) Ellyde Roko was in L.A. for a deposition earlier in May 2011. That’s her on the left. Joining her for dinner here? Former State newspaper features designer (and now Hollywood Reporter associate art director) Kathy Bryja, at center, with me on the right (formerly a State newspaper assistant metro editor, and now Shellevator). On the other side of the table? Former State newspaper assistant metro editor (and now FOXSports.com copy chief) Kenley Young. Photo courtesy of Justin Shady, Kathy’s fiance and author of The Blarg.
Next time, we need reporter Gina Smith, features editor Betsey Guzior and other current and former staffers to join us.
