Editor's note 2/14/19

By now IT readers have noticed her byline, frequent in the past several issues. Lindsey Salvatelli is our editorial intern for this semester through the Public Affairs Reporting master’s degree program at University of Illinois Springfield. She brings with her a 2018 bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northern Illinois University and, as important, life experience from what she calls “dead-end jobs” from a time before she realized her dream of a journalism career might be possible after all. To pay the bills she still occasionally goes back part-time to one of those former jobs – as an assembly line production supervisor at the Chrysler plant in Belvidere – but her dedication is to journalism. “Journalism is in a bad spot right now, tarnished for everybody,” she says. “But news is so necessary for a healthy political system.” Welcome, Lindsey.  –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
