Tom Honig says he resigned as editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel in the hope his departure would lessen budget cuts and layoffs at the MediaNews publication. The 59-year-old Honig, who has been at the Sentinel for 35 years, says he anticipated further cuts. He says he was not asked to resign but "nobody tried to stop me either," according to a story in the Sentinel. He is taking a job with the Monterey-based Armanasco Public Relations firm.
