New voice on the Alameda Journal blog

Starting this week, look for a new voice on the Alameda Journal blog. Lucinda Ryan edited the Alameda Journal from 2000 to 2006, and worked as a reporter for the paper for seven years before that. More recently she was an online news editor for the Oakland Tribune. She is currently working as a freelance journalist. Welcome, Lucinda!

    I’ve been trying to access Lucinda’s article about micro-organisms in the Bay, and the links aren’t working. Could you please let her know? Thanks.

    Sorry, Jill, the posting wasn’t meant for publication yet. And with luck this year, it never will (meaning that swimmer’s itch won’t show up in the Bay).

    It was just a test run to see if everything was working on the site and my mistake was to hit the publish button.

    If I see any reports on swimmer’s itch return (it was here last year) I’ll post an item.
