Banning-Beaumont Patch Editor Renee Schiavone here, with some news about the site for you.
For the next several weeks, I will be out on maternity leave, as my husband and I expect the arrival of our first baby any day now. As our little girl is sure to take up a great deal of time at first, I will not be the primary editor/reporter during my leave.
Rather, in the meantime, you'll continue to receive timely news and information updates from around the Pass area through a great guest editor who will be helping to run the site.
and is the perfect substitute editor since he was born and raised in the I.E., in nearby Redlands, and used to work for the Press-Enterprise, from 2003 to 2009. Mathew has been helping write articles for Patch for some time now, and is great with putting news videos up as well.
"If you see a guy wandering around with long hair and headphones around his neck, and holding a tripod with a DSLR camera full of crazy attachments you may have never seen before- that is probably me," Matt says. "Please stop by and say hey."
You can continue to email me with your story ideas and I'll be sure they get to Matt, or you can contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for continuing to read Patch, and I'll be back soon!
