Members of the San Diego Newspaper Guild ended a bitter labor dispute with the Union-Tribune Publishing Co., voting begrudgingly to accept a new, two-year contract but saying all is not well at San Diego's two largest newspapers. Guild members voted 227 to 78 to accept the new labor package that calls, among other things, for an immediate 10% pay raise--the first pay increase for many employees since December, 1987.

SAN DIEGO - David Copley, owner and publisher of the San Diego Union-Tribune until it was sold in 2009, died Tuesday after crashing his Aston Martin near his home in La Jolla. Copley, 60, was found slumped in the front seat of his car early in the evening and rushed to Scripps Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had left a board meeting of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, saying he did not feel well. The cause of death was an apparent heart attack; Copley had received a heart transplant in 2005.

A pressroom fire at the San Diego Union forced editors to put out a thinner and delayed version of the newspaper. About 150 to 200 people were evacuated from the building when the fire broke out at 1:15 a.m. in one of four presses, a fire official said. A sprinkler system extinguished the fire in minutes and nobody was injured, but two presses were knocked out of service.

The San Diego Tribune passed quietly into history Saturday, its readers reluctantly paying their last respects at newsstands throughout the city that the afternoon daily had served for 96 years. More resigned than mournful at the death of another newspaper, readers and souvenir hunters bought final copies of the Trib and its more well-to-do sister, the Union, both of which appeared for the last time as separate publications Saturday.
