Staff Changes at Heritage Newspapers

Heritage Newspapers-West, which includes newspapers in Saline, Milan, Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester, Ypsilanti and Belleville, will see some changes next week as we switch some staff around to better utilize their talents.

Deputy Managing Editor Terry Jacoby has been named sports editor for all eight newspapers and will cover high school sports in Chelsea and Dexter. In turn, Don Richter, who has held the sports editor position for Chelsea and Dexter for the last nine years, will move to Saline and Milan, covering the Hornets and Big Reds. Jana Miller, sports reporter for The Saline Reporter and Milan News-Leader, heads over to Manchester to write news, serve as copy editor and special sections coordinator. Daniel Lai, who has held the copy editor and reporter position at The Manchester Enterprise since spring 2007, will serve as copy editor and reporter for The Chelsea Standard and Dexter Leader.

All press releases and photos submitted to the editor@ e-mail addresses will be forwarded to the new person in charge beginning Dec. 10 as Jana will design and paginate the Manchester paper and Daniel will do the same for the Chelsea and Dexter papers. Each also may be contacted through their personal e-mail addresses through the newspapers, and Terry can be reached at and Don at

Terry began implementing some new design and feature components as part of our expanded sports sections in the fall and plans to take that further as he leads the sports department in the new year.

Please join me in congratulating everyone on their new positions and please feel free to e-mail them your thoughts, suggestions, press releases and photographs.
