    What’s the reason for the no jump policy? We jump all our front page stories to the back page of the section. So all the reader has to do is flip the paper around. We also run 3-5 stories on the front as I see only two on this page.

    The no-jump rule is a tremendous constraint, and I suspect it will present different challenges with each issue, not only for the designer, but also for the writers and editors. I hope your readers appreciate it.

    In this case, I can see two ways the tint might be avoided. One is to box the horse-murder story, or at least run a rule across the top and down the right side of it. The other is to set it in a 2- rather than a 3-column layout. Doing both might be best, but if (as it appears) your style includes minimal use of rules, the difference in column width should be sufficient to set it off from the right-hand leg.

    I agree with Ed. I’ve had to segment stories because they were too long, even when we jumped them. If you really read the story carefully, you’ll see several stories there. Might even have been two stories in the horse story. Many years ago I was chastised about using screens. Then I worked for an editor who loved them and ran a screen, no matter what color was in the front page position. AND he loved running reverse type. So one day, a very big front page story ran reverse on yellow. No one had a clue what the story was!
