Communication IS Key

Life as a small town journalist

“Local self-government…is the life-blood of Liberty”

-John Lothrop Motley

While employed by The Mining Journal, I covered the city of Marquette, including meetings of local governing bodies, city departments, organizations, and so on. I also wrote a weekly article for the food and beverage page, which was published on Saturdays.

When I first started at the paper, I covered the Marquette County Commission, police reports, and court cases.
