Faces change, but commitment to Sewickley Valley stays strong

As I look back on the past two years as news editor of the Sewickley Herald, I have many memories.

I've learned more things about the community than I ever would have known.

I've met more people than I ever would have met.

I've followed issues that I knew about but was able to learn much more about them.

This is my last issue of the Sewickley Herald. I have accepted a position elsewhere, but the newspaper remains committed to the community.

The No. 1 question I've fielded over this time is “How do I get something in the newspaper?”

It's easy.

If you would like to submit an item about an event at a church, club or other community organization, have news about a student earning a spot on the dean's list or would like to get a wedding announcement into the Herald, you have several options.

You can email the information to; mail it to the Sewickley Herald, 504 Beaver St., Sewickley, PA 15143; fax it to 412-324-1401; or drop it off at the office.

The deadline to submit information is Friday for the next Thursday's edition.

If you would like to talk to a reporter about a story idea, you can contact one of the Herald staffers:

• News reporter Bobby Cherry,, 412-324-1408.

• Photographer-reporter Kristina Serafini,, 412-324-1405.

• Feature reporter Joanne Barron,, 412-324-1406.

To contact the managing editor, Kim Palmiero, email

If you have a sports story idea to submit to the sports department, you can send the information to Bill Hartlep at or call him at 412-320-7934.

For advertisements, contact: display advertising, Carolyn Dymerski, 412-324-1411, or email her at; or for classified advertising, call 800-551-5677.

To place a paid obituary, contact or call 866-794-9801

Missed a newspaper? Call circulation at 800-909-8742.

Community newspapers thrive when readers give input and contribute.

The Sewickley Herald seeks your help in staying on top of everything that is occurring in the area.
