Readers of The Pipestone Flyer may have noticed a few changes to the newspaper over the past two months.

At the beginning of June, the paper welcomed a new editor, Stu Salkeld, and recently welcomed a new full-time reporter/photographer Amelia Naismith to handle news and feature coverage along with writing opinion columns and photojournalism.

Previously, The Flyer and its readers enjoyed the work of community freelance reporters, including Dominique Vrolyk, Barry McDonald, Tom Dirsa, Stacie McKinney, Samara Paine and Linda Steinke. These changes are not a reflection on the Pipestone Flyer’s freelancers who are known and liked throughout the communities of Leduc, Wetaskiwin, Millet, Thorsby, Warburg, Pigeon Lake, Calmar and Winfield.

The management and staff of The Pipestone Flyer extend a heartfelt thank you to the community freelance reporters.

Readers may also notice a few changes to content, as some well-used features may be shelved or retired and some new ones introduced. The focus on local news will remain the same, however.

Anyone with a story idea or news tip may call  editor Stu Salkeld at 780-387-5797. Have an opinion on a story, article or photo you saw in The Pipestone Flyer? Send a letter to the editor (editor@pipestoneflyer.ca).
