Hi, you landed on Redheaded Blackbelt. I own it, that’s me to the left, Kym Kemp. I do everything from photography to selling ads to writing stories.
I’m totally in love with the Emerald Counties, that incredible place south of the Oregon border and east of the Pacific Ocean that is home to redwoods, rolling hills, Victorian mansions, hippie homesteads, wildflowers and wildlife.
Yes, I really did get my black belt (in Tang Soo Do) and I used to have red hair before I became a news reporter. (Putting this colorful world in black and white made my hair gray.) I live about 45 minutes from the nearest town and spend way too much time on my computer getting the latest information to my readers. (For something I’m really proud of click here.)
Now, let me introduce you to Bobby Kroeker. Bobby is a wayward Canadian who has been living in the area for many years. He’s out and about in Eureka picking up stories for us.
He and his lady, Nena, are artists. Check out their work here.
While I’m introducing people, here’s Sandi Petersen. That’s her to your left. She runs a highly successful Facebook-based community website, Eel Valley Crime Stoppers.
She joined us to cover the Fortuna “neighborhood.” She knows the folks who live in the Friendly City and has a sense of what is important to them.
And here’s our behind the scene person Bobbi Wisby. She’s our website developer and computer wrangler–she makes us look pretty. We tell her what we want and she makes it happen. (Go here for more of her stuff.)
