Hey, look! Greg King, longtime environmental activist and current executive director of the Siskiyou Land Conservancy, has a letter in the Mailbox section of this week's New Yorker magazine.
She grew up in New York State and earned a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Columbia University in New York City. Jennifer was a book editor, food blogger and professor of English in Japan before moving to Humboldt in 2011 with her husband, Eureka native Jason Marak, and their two young children.
She’ll be helping with editing here at the Journal, as well as writing about food, the arts, and well … for anyone who takes on zombie wrestling, the sky’s the limit.
The Journal's own Heidi Walters has been named a national finalist for beat reporting by the Association of Alternative Newsmedia. We entered just a few of her wonderful and diverse pieces of environmental reporting: Bright Bird, about research into bird intelligence; The World is Yours, Oyster Farmer, about aquaculture in Humboldt Bay, and A Place in the Woods, about threatened closures of state parks.
Winners will be announced on July 13 at the association's annual conference in Miami.
The Journal’s Ryan Burns is first in investigative reporting, first in local government coverage and first in writing, says the California Newspaper Association’s Better Newspapers Contest.And our whole staff comes in second in breaking news coverage, for our June 2012 election edition.The honors, for weekly papers in our size category from all over California, were handed out in late April, while everybody at the Journal was scurrying to get our new website up and running. But we finally had a chance to take a deep breath and take notice. So go, Ryan!Announced earlier, by the way, were five honorable mentions for illustration, cartooning, feature writing, environmental reporting and investigative reporting. You can find links to all the Journal's winning entries here.
Great, Chris! Now the rest of you young folks replace that crazy City Council!
Great illustration of a problem that the free market just can't solve. This hasn't changed…
This has made my day. I dare hope again. Thank you Chris!
You will have my vote Chris!
