Submit questions for The I-5 Corridor mailbag

A few housekeeping items as preseason football camp opens around the state:

1. You won’t see my byline the rest of the week because I’m here in Corvallis as a mentor for the High School Journalism Institute camp. Could the fine folks at HSJI have found a better influence than a sports writer who quit his last full-time job and now runs a Substack? Absolutely. But this is what the kids are stuck with. You can read more about that here if you’re interested.

2. This sets up my next announcement: Shane Hoffmann, who has contributed pieces to The I-5 Corridor during our first year, will be a regular writer throughout the upcoming football season. He’ll be reporting from Eugene this week while I’m away. Shane’s done a fantastic job for us in the past and I’m really excited to see what sort of stories his consistent coverage will provide.

Give him a follow on Twitter at @shane_hoffmann.

3. Let’s get a mailbag rolling for next week. Submit any questions you may have in the comments and I’ll answer the best ones in a column — assuming I survive four more nights here in AC-less dorms.
