With Jordan Guinn moving to The Record, we've hired Sara Jane Pohlman as a reporter. Sara Jane is a Lodi High School and Sonoma State grad and she is off to a flying start.

With Jordan's departure and Sara's arrival, we've reshuffled the beat coverage here a bit. I shared the following memo with the staff and thought I would post it for anyone in the community who might be interested.

Whew. We've had quite a round of change of late. Just wanted to sort out who is doing what now. Here goes:

Ross continues to cover county government, religion, outlying rural communities and lead on political coverage. He continues to work the Sunday shift.

Maggie covers Lodi city hall. She covers courts and cops Monday when Katie is out. Maggie is now our online news coordinator and writes the blog, City Buzz, too.

Jennifer Bonnett is covering Galt city hall, Galt high school and elementary districts, Galt business and the news-oriented side of Lodi Memorial. (Pam is covering the feature side of Lodi Memorial and health/fitness.)

Kate is covering Lodi and Galt public safety, SJ sheriff's and jail and juvenile hall, outlying fire districts along with wine, biz and real estate. She covers the Saturday shift. She heads up our contributed content effort.

Sara is covering Lodi Unified, water, ag and resource (environmental) issues. She is also lead for covering youth culture/campus life and related issues. She helps on the desk on Thursday nights.

Lauren continues with Lodi Living, including arts and entertainment and is helping on youth culture/issues as well.

Pam continues with Panorama, including Taste, clubs, milestones, Weekender and the Learning page. She writes the "Saving with Pam," column.

Ed works sports but also, as time permits, will cover Delta College under Scott Howell's direction. He helps out on the desk on Wednesday night.

Machelle continues as newsroom assistant, but is taking on twice-a-month contributions to Career Insight.

What have I missed? Let me know.
