Neil Lineberger is the new business editor at the Gaston Gazette, a newspaper south of Charlotte in North Carolina.
A story on the paper’s Web site stated, “In 2004, Lineberger returned to Gaston County, joining Benefit Partners Inc., to work for his brother, Charles Lineberger. As an employee benefits specialist, Lineberger sold insurance to area businesses. He became active in the Gaston Chamber, Rotary and other business and civic organizations.
