Last Monday, Chelsea Kiwanis heard from Lisa Allmendinger, publisher of Chelsea Update.

The daily online publication recently celebrated 11 years of delivering local news, features, sports, events and notices for Chelsea and surrounding areas via a daily, free online publication.

She maintains the website with donations from her readers, advertisers, and a staff of reporters and photographers. Since the beginning, over 100,000 stories have been published.

The most read story was the discovery of wooly mammoth bones on a local farm, which first appeared in Chelsea Update and the subsequent reaction from readers temporarily overwhelmed the website. The recent power outages in the area also prevented her operation from posting stories for days, unfortunately occurring just as the Chelsea Community Fair was in its final two days. It took another week to post all the stories about the fair.

Lisa is dismayed by much of the news coverage in the past few years, which has failed to present both sides of an issue. She is determined to be neutral, not taking a side, even calling herself a “dinosaur” in journalism as she resists these trends.

With eyes toward the future, Lisa hopes to instill a non-biased reporting approach in the high school journalists she is mentoring.

In addition to Chelsea Update, Lisa and her two Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, Buzz and Aiden, have had much success, winning ribbons at dog shows around the country.

The Kiwanis Club of Chelsea is pleased to support her efforts to keep citizens informed.
