Good-bye, Eric Barton. We'll miss ya.

Starting today, New Times Broward Palm Beach has a new editor. 

Except he is the same as the old one. Kind of.

Chuck Strouse, who edited this newspaper from 2000 to 2005, will return in the dual role as top gun at Miami New Times and New Times/Broward Palm Beach

Eric Barton, who started at New Times BPB as a staff writer, became managing editor of The Pitch in Kansas City and then returned home, will depart. 

Village Voice Media executive managing editor Christine Brennan attributed the change to "the lingering effects of the recession" and added that "the Broward and Miami papers will remain independent."

"I will miss the enthusiasm and creativity that Eric brought to his job and I am grateful for
the years he spent with us. I wish him the best."

With Strouse, a former Hollywood resident and South Florida Sun Sentinel bureau chief at the helm, she said: " I am confident that our content will be in good hands, and that we will be well positioned to continue growing our business in both markets."
