I am the assistant editor of the Benicia Herald. The paper is going through a major transition right now. Our editor of 7 years left shortly after I came in, and we have an interim editor who has worked tirelessly to keep the paper afloat. Nobody was trained on how to upload stories to the website, so that is why it hasn't updated in a while.
Until we are able to get the site updated again, I wanted a place to put my stories in the meantime, hence this blog. I'm going to be posting my original drafts here for now. I will not be posting articles until the print edition comes out. When the site is up and running again, I'll stop.
Also, here's a link to the articles I wrote before the transition.
