Susan Gill Vardon has joined the Ramona Sentinel as its new editor and general manager.
“I’m really looking forward to moving into my office in Ramona and getting out in the community to meet you all. That might not happen right away because of the coronavirus. The office is closed and I’m working at home, as I’m sure many of you are.
