Letter from the Editor: A time for change at The Island News

At The Island News, we are dedicated to bringing our readers a variety of the most important and relevant local news and events.

In the past year, the paper has made changes that we hope will improve our coverage and focus on life in northern Beaufort County.

We are proud to introduce new staff members Pamela Brownstein, Tess Malijenovsky and Nancy Gregory.
Pamela has a degree in journalism from Penn State and has worked for many years at local newspapers and magazines. As editor and graphic designer, she is in charge of the content and the overall look of the paper.

Although new to the area, Tess brings with her a fresh perspective as well as a background in writing, editing and photojournalism. She will be the general assignment reporter covering city government, crime and educational issues.

And longtime Beaufortonian Nancy Gregory is the woman the businesses go to for all their advertising needs.

We also commend all our longtime columnists and contributors for their tireless efforts covering the community, and we welcome the new faces and voices that will soon grace our pages.

Of course, where would we be without the continued support of our devoted readers and all the caring members of the community who send us their photos and stories and share their ideas and suggestions with us. We rely on your feedback and submissions, so please, keep them coming.

We have expanded the actual size of our paper to 32 pages, and have established a new office right downtown, making it easier for you to stop by, chat and find out what we’re all about: bringing our community together.
