The Observer’s new editor and publisher Michael Chalmers revamped the magazine’s look this month, both online and in print. And I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I’ve been contributing to The Observer as a feature writer regularly for more than two years (and intermittently before that), focusing on land use, historic preservation and related issues in and around Jefferson County, West Virginia. Mike’s combination of energy and ambition already has expanded The Observer’s focus into politics, health, cars, food, and more.
You can read my feature “Anatomy of a Bike Path” in the April issue here. Keep looking for more good things from The Observer in months to come.
