The Pioneer Group is announcing several staffing changes at its Osceola and Lake county weekly newspapers.
Jim Crees is moving to our Big Rapids office where he will become the Pioneer’s Features Editor. Jim has done a splendid job as our Osceola County editor. This move allows us to have Jim focus on his greatest strength – writing great stories about interesting people. In addition, Jim will help supervise the reporting staff, cover state politics and contribute to editorial pages for the daily and both weeklies. Osceola and Lake residents will continue to see Jim in their communities, though serving in this new role as feature writer.
