WHEN DAN McClanahan became print production manager at the Pennysaver, he was comfortable that he had the graphic-arts skills needed for the position. Also, his work as a plate maker had made him familiar with the machines and mechanical processes involved in producing the weekly magazine. Still, one part of his job made the Crofton resident nervous. As a manager, he would be responsible for making oral presentations at company meetings about such topics as production and safety. Unfortunately, like many people, Dan was not a confident public speaker.

If they do feel a touch of the jitters, they always know they can mask their fears. "Almost everyone is afraid of public speaking," Harper's Choice resident Emma Frost said at a meeting at the Bryant Woods neighborhood center.
