Dennis Skalicky, publisher of the Lake Cowichan Gazette, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tamu Miles as the new editor of the paper.

For the past four years, Miles has studied creative writing and journalism at Vancouver Island University. She has worked as arts editor for the Navigator, the university’s student press, and as marketing manager for Portal, the only literary magazine published in the Nanaimo area. While attending university, Miles won several writing awards, including the 2012 BC and Yukon Community Newspaper Association scholarship.

Miles is pleased to be taking over the helm of the Gazette in the position of editor and she looks forward to getting to know the community and continuing a tradition of excellence in reporting community news and events.

Miles has lived in small, coastal communities all of her life, spending most of that time on Salt Spring Island. She currently resides in Ladysmith with her husband and daughter, but the family plans to move closer to the Lake Cowichan area in the near future.

Miles feels strongly that the function of local papers is to give individuals, businesses, and the community at large a voice and a way to share and discuss challenges and celebrate talents.

Miles looks forward to a long relationship with the Cowichan Lake communities, and is grateful for the chance to prove her journalistic grit and passion for local, community based reporting.
