Editorial: Here’s Jim!

Jim Erickson recently joined the Lake County News-Chronicle and we’re as pleased as we can be.

Jim has an impressive background in cinema studies and produced videos for a major Minnesota-based corporation for over 10 years. He now lives on the North Shore with his Airedale Terrier, Lucy, and together they enjoy walking the local trails and beaches.

Jim will be using his photography skills to capture life, people and events here in our beautiful Lake County communities and assisting with some of the editorial tasks and research that are part of the stories you read each week in the News-Chronicle.

Most importantly, Jim will be the friendly face at the front desk. He’s a customer service rock star and has already proven that he’ll go the extra mile to ensure that your questions are answered and problems resolved.

Come in and meet Jim. Pick up a paper and take a look at some of his photography, now gracing our reception area. Bring your pup, too. We’ve got treats for humans and their four-footed companions!
