Julie B. Maglio is not just the editor of the Hernando Sun. She also owns and publishes the paper. She has learned the newspaper business on the job and is becoming very knowledgeable on full truck ads, above the fold, and all things related to the business.

Julie is from a family of artists and is pretty accomplished as a large oils and mixed media painter. Her artistic talents were displayed in some of the earlier papers in the form of cartoons, but currently are only displayed in portions of the layout and some of the ads.
