Cone, 48, quit her job as a Mercury News staff writer in 1999 and bought The Pinnacle. She sold it in 2004 to MainStreet Media, which has acquired other nearby papers including the Gilroy Dispatch. She stayed on for a year as publisher before a family health crisis caused her to quit. She said that when the health issue cleared up, she decided to run.
