About three months into the 2015-16 mentoring program, Rodriguez suddenly lost his job at the Las Vegas Review-Journal following its purchase by local billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Selected first- and second-level executives were let go or re-assigned, Rodriguez said. At the time he was senior director of advertising/classified, agency, niche and magazines.

I want to tell you a story. Don't worry. I'll keep it short.

We can tell this story best because our storytellers – our employees – are part of the community, too. We are your friends and neighbors.More
