It's been awhile since I wrote a column, and one of my resolutions in the new year is to connect with our readers more, now that I have my feet under me a bit more solidly since becoming regional editor (at least I think I do!) One way of doing that is helping people get to know me better. I am more than the person sitting behind the computer screen, reading and arranging stories for each week's editions and websites.

Every child deserves a chance to have a Merry Christmas. That is the inspiration behind the third annual Pierce County Shop with a Cop event, set for 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16 in Ellsworth.

As the holiday season kicks off, the tinkling of Salvation Army bells will waft through the air, beckoning shoppers to drop coins, bills and checks into the waiting Red Kettles, stationed throughout area communities. This year's Pierce County campaign will run Nov. 24 through Dec. 23 at locations in River Falls and Ellsworth, said Pierce County Kettle Coordinator Deanna Hines. "We are very thankful for the people who donate as well as the people who ring bells," Hines said.
Aaron Moore hopes area farmers will stop into the Farm Service Agency office in the Pierce County Office Building in Ellsworth and introduce themselves. After all, the new county executive director thrives on his ability to help people. Moore took over the position Sept. 5 from Robert Forrest, who retired at the end of August. His job involves working with farmers to sign them up for programs administered through the FSA, although that's just the tip of the iceberg. Before coming to Pierce, he held that position managing the Balsam Lake Service Center.
She dove into the Pierce County sports scene with both feet and from her writing, you can tell she loves what she does. Pierce County Herald/RiverTown Multimedia sports and education reporter Katie Davidson began her new role with the company in September, after reporter Jalen Knuteson took a job closer to his hometown in southern Wisconsin. You may have seen her on the sidelines of Pierce County games, and she's already putting her stamp on telling the stories of local athletes.
