Starting this week, you’ll be seeing a new face around town.
The East County Observer Oct. 22 welcomed its newest team member, Josh Siegel.
Siegel has the passion for people and storytelling that make him a perfect fit for the East County Observer.
Because Siegel’s dad, Terry Siegel, currently lives in Sonoma and formerly lived in Heritage Harbour, Josh is already familiar with the East County community and its geography.
A recent graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University, Siegel brings experience in both sports and news reporting, as well as work in broadcast journalism to the Observer team.
Welcome aboard, Josh!

Students in Marti Bhame's second-grade class, at Braden River Elementary, embodied fictional characters and brought their stories to life during their production of "The Three F's…Fables, Folktales and Fairy Tales," April 17. The students performed three bite-sized renditions of "The Grasshopper and the Ant," "Dinerella" — "Cinderella" with dinosaurs — and "Stone Soup." Each mini play represented a different type of story to coincide with fairy tale and other story-themed curriculum Bhame has been teaching.
