Greetings, Telegram & & Gazette readers. I hope your fall is off to an excellent and healthy start.It’s been
a number of months now given that I began as managing editor of the newspaper, and I wished to write to present what I believe are a couple nice enhancements to our coverage.
For the first time in years, the Telegram now has a press reporter covering the Statehouse.
She’s Kinga Borondy, and she joins the T&G personnel after investing the previous a number of months covering Beacon Hill for Gannett’s WickedLocal network of publications. A New Jersey native, she invested 20 years covering the Garden State for different outlets. A lots of those years remained in Newark as the criminal offense and emergency services reporter for the Star-Ledger; more recently she was a writer for The Press of Atlantic City covering fishing, golf and food; and worked as a freelancer.This week, you may
have actually seen her story on the future of the state Republican politician Celebration.
Over the next couple of weeks, Kinga will offer protection of essential statewide races in the November election. Moving forward, she’ll be bringing a Worcester County focus to coverage of Beacon Hill.
“I am insatiably curious, love talking with individuals, finding and following information and informing everyone about it,” Kinga states. “I intend to cover the Statehouse in a way that brings legislation to life and makes it meaningful for everyday life.”
You can reach her at [email protected] Central Mass.Additionally, beginning this weekend, a brand-new gardening column will be making its launching at
telegram.com and in the ACT area of the Sunday newspaper. This column remains in partnership with the New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill and will be curated by its
CEO, Grace Elton. Her vision for the column is to provide environmentally tailored gardening advice through fun and informative stories, suggestions and tricks; to engage, educate and inspire the house gardener; and to be inclusive of individuals who may be pursuing gardening interests without access to standard gardening areas. “What I enjoy about dealing with plants is that there is no lack of chances to be astonished,”she says.”Plants are necessary to our lives in these truly
big methods, providing food, shelter, medication and oxygen. On a smaller, specific scale, growing plants can bring us tremendous joy and complete satisfaction. I hope that this column will motivate readers to discover or deepen their love for plants, gardening and, most of all, the natural world that we are all a part of. “The column will work on the 3rd Sunday of each month.T & G Santa Fund In other news of note, we’re less than a month method from starting the 84th year of the T&G Santa Fund, in which contributions from readers, companies and companies help lighten up the holidays for needy children.
