Kristin Will
Editor
Kristin Will was hooked on journalism starting in grade four when a class project requiring her to create a newspaper sparked her interest in the industry. That interest continued into high school, where Will was editor of South Hadley High School’s newspaper, Spotlight, and English classes were her favorite to attend.
Will attended Framingham State College from which she graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a concentration in journalism. There, too, she joined the newspaper, The Gatepost, writing and photographing. Will worked her way up the ranks to become the paper’s Associate Editor in her senior year. Following her graduation from college, Will dove into the world of freelancing, where she was able to contribute to eight of Turley Publications’ newspapers.
Now, as Editor of both the Town Reminder and Holyoke Sun, she is able to focus on South Hadley and Holyoke. When not sleuthing on assignment, Will can be found behind the lens of her camera or racking up miles on her bike. Drop by the office to say hello or submit news to your local paper run by a local lady.

Tim Kane
Executive Editor, Turley Publications
A 16-year veteran of the newspaper industry, Tim has been a part of the Turley team since 2005. He entered the trade with the goal to make a difference in the world by serving as a public informant and seeking the truth—and continues to work by that guiding principle today. His favorite assignment was breaking a series of stories in Ashland, Mass. about one man's battle with cancer and his quest to uncover the truth about a former manufacturer's decades of hazardous waste dumping in town. Tim has a BA from Fitchburg State College and attended the American Press Institute. Tim lives in Brookfield with his wife, Danielle, and their two sons, Timmy Jr. and Christopher. His pastimes include songwriting, drumming, writing fiction, cross-country skiing, hiking, trail maintenance, and volunteering for the Boy Scouts.

Johnson would not be a candidate for reelection. In addition to his reporting career, Dan has an extensive background in business, including owning an egg carton manufacturing operation in Palmer, Mass., and creating an employee recognition program (the 100 Club) that’s been featured in TIME magazine and more than 150 other periodicals world-wide.

Dennis P. Hohenberger
Correspondent
Dennis Hohenberger is a reporter/writer based in Western Massachusetts. He considers Los Angeles his second home and enjoys the contrast in styles between both places. Dennis studied journalism at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Besides spending too many years in Boston, he lived for a number of years in Washington, DC, bearing witness to the every day happenings of life and politics in the nation’s capital. He made it a weekly habit of exploring the galleries and museums on The Mall, especially the National Gallery. While living in Washington, DC, Hohenberger survived studying method acting at the acclaimed Studio Theater Conservatory. Later, he found himself living in the uber-hip confines of Sunset Boulevard of Los Angeles. His passion is community-based reporting and writing about the heroic and not so heroic events of life in Holyoke and the surrounding communities. To him, a story is a story.
David Henry
Freelance Photographer
David was born and raised in Chicopee and graduated from Chicopee High. He was retired after a long career with the Air Force and wondered what to do next. A friend suggested he take his love of photography and do something he would enjoy in his retirement. After a kind of unofficial internship with Turley, where he learned as much as he could as fast as he could, he became a regular for the Turley papers. He then started a web site www.sweetdogphotos.com.
