In case you haven't noticed (and I won't hold it against you if you didn't), my smiling face is no longer on the front of the Showcase section on Sundays. You have probably noticed I'm hanging around this website a little more often.
I haven't left the building, but Luke Wark is now the chief photographer at the Register. I have no doubt he will take and run with the torch that was given to me by Tim Fleck and I now pass to him.
I will still be out in the community covering events, but in a role of live-event coverage. I am also taking a large role in the management of our websites; sanduskyregister.com, funcoast.com, firelandsintraining.com and fandy.com. Wow, that's a lot of "f"s.
Angela Wilhelm, you have probably seen her name under a few photos recently (and I won't hold it against you if you didn't), has been hired for Luke's former position. Angie, who grew up in Monroeville and recently graduated from Ohio University in VisCom, started at the Register as an intern and has had several temporary stints here in the past several years. She is also working to develop an Instagram account for the Register, look it up.
As always, e-mail me with an story ideas you may have. My e-mail and phone number will not be changing: email@example.com and (419)609-5850.
I'm looking forward to the new features we will be developing for the newspaper and Tandem Network of websites now and in the upcoming months.
One new feature that was suggested was to allow photographers an outlet for their photos to be published both online and in print. If you have a nice pictorial, feature or landscape photo you would like featured on our Firelands Faces page, e-mail one or two photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students of the Month
Another feature I'm looking forward to should put more smiling faces in the pages of our newspaper, but I need your help to do it. If you are a school administrator or teacher and currently have a student of the month/week program in place, please let me know about it. We are looking to feature the photos in the pages of the Register starting very soon. My contact information is above.
