Say hello to our new reporter

I'd like to welcome our new reporter for The Saline Reporter and The Milan News-Leader. His name is Steven Howard and he comes to us from The Hillsdale Daily News, where he covered government, police, courts, schools and wrote feature stories. You may have seen his byline in the now-defunct Ann Arbor News, where he was a freelance reporter and photographer from October 2008 to April 2009.

Steven has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Eastern Michigan University and is a master's degree candidate in literature at EMU. He also worked as a graduate lecturer at EMU, teaching introductory English composition courses.

At the Hillsdale paper he initiated a series titled "Lost Cities" profiling old communities that no longer exist, but were identified by a street sign or were known by word of mouth. Many of the towns disappeared during the Great Depression as people left to find work. Steven has a deep interest in history and passion for community journalism.

Please join me in welcoming him to the community. He welcomes your story ideas. You can reach him at 429-7380 or
