Yelm Community Blog brings changes on the 16th anniversary

Dear readers,

Today, on March 29th, the Yelm Community Blog has been operating with virtually daily posts for 16 years, since 2005. This blog has been from the longest serving single reporter in Yelm compared to any other online or print publication staff. I have been proud to provide the community with stories that give you, the reader, public documents to read and discern news stories for yourself, and without any paid advertisements.

I was prepared to scale back blog posts before the pandemic hit, then this blog’s daily reader base skyrocketed. However, I have reached the point where I am announcing that posts will only be periodic and focused more on local issues after today, March 29, 2022.

The best way to know when new posts are uploaded is to follow on Twitter or subscribe for the e-list on the right side of the home page.

A heartfelt THANK YOU for your interest and support all of these years. I have appreciated your interest.


Steve Klein

  2. Thank you so much Steve! I am really going to miss my fave news source but I wish you a wonderful whatever you will be doing instead of keeping us updated on the state of the world. Thanks for continuing with the local updates. Your records of Yelm’s water supply are incredibly detailed and informative. Wow. We are so lucky to have had you!
