Nothing's perfect, especially when you're talking about overhauling the Sacramento area's most-viewed and most complex news Web site.
The sacbee.com redesign launch last week had a few snags. One of them, as several of you quickly pointed out, was that the new site had links to this blog but none to the State Worker columns we write each Thursday for both the Bee's print and online editions. You used to find the column through either the Business tab or the Politics tab on the old site.
We mentioned it to online Assistant Managing Editor Ken Chavez and literally within an hour the problem was fixed.
If you look to the right of this post, you'll see a new "Now on the State Worker column" feature. Below that, Ken's staff added links to the most recent weekly ramblings, including today's column about how much state workers matter to the local economy.
If you click on the "More headlines" button below the the list of the three most recent columns and you'll go into State Worker column archives.
And while we're plugging, make sure you read today's report, written with Bee business ace Dale Kasler, about how CalPERS losses could force employers to ante up more in payroll fees to cover the fund's retirement obligations. We broke that news in this Monday blog post. You can go there to link to the CalPERS analysis of its assets and the range of possible payroll fee hikes it may demand from employers depending on what its assets are worth next summer.
