Hi, there.

I have been covering news in Douglas County, Wisconsin, for more than two decades. My stories span a wide range of beats and I tend to bring my camera to every assignment, just in case.

I grew up in rural Douglas County and graduated from Northwestern High School before earning a communications degree at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

I've been a resident of Superior for nearly 30 years, and it's where my children attended, and continue to attend, school.

Sharing what's happening in the education scene, from the board room to the classroom, has been one of my passions since day one. I started my career with the Telegram on the education beat, and have won multiple awards for my coverage of local schools and universities. I then transitioned to the cops and courts beat. To this day, I am committed to covering local crime trends, incidents and proposed solutions that matter to readers.

The joy of working on a small paper is that I can continue to follow these stories and much more. I can introduce readers to new and expanding businesses in our area, shine a light on the work area agencies are doing, peer into the goings-on of local government and share personal stories from your neighbors.

Being able to serve the community I grew up in carries special meaning to me. Over the years, I have met amazing people and shared so many stories. One thing that I've found is every person has an interesting story to tell.

Reach me by phone at 218-393-6768 or email at mlockwood@superiortelegram.com.
