Panic, you guys! The Oregonian is now Stickel-less! From The O:

In a style that didn't much surprise his colleagues or friends, Patrick Stickel, president of The Oregonian, quietly retired Wednesday from the newspaper where he had spent most of his life since moving to Portland in 1967.

"As president, Pat Stickel was the best possible steward of The Oregonian, its resources, deep roots in the community and time-honored brand," said Sandy Rowe, who retires as editor of The Oregonian this week.

As Oregon Media Central notes, this is the first time in 42 years that the O will not have a Stickel in an executive role. So to recap... PANIC!!

I'll put an ad on Craigslist for a Stickel, and maybe you can ask your friends if they've got a Stickel they can spare?
