After a career in the newspaper business, spanning years in the weekly world in Northeast Nebraska and then 25 years at the York News-Times, Melanie Wilkinson has launched this website full of local news and opinions pieces known as Just Melanie (in keeping with the theme of her decades-long column). 
With a commitment to covering local news and continuing her column, the public is welcome to contact her with story ideas, tips and questions at mel@justmelaniew.com. 
Public interaction is imperative to help this site be a source of information as well as reading enjoyment – so please reach out! 
If you want to support this effort of community journalism, we’d be so appreciative of banner ads to be part of the site. Just go to ads@justmelaniew.com for more information. We believe in keeping this free to the readers will provide benefit to businesses who have share of views, at a low cost, with benefit of their businesses getting exposure with the most eyes possible. 
Justmelaniew.com is about providing local journalism, providing news about what means the most to you. We are always open to hearing what you would like to see, what we can provide. 
Since launching in mid-June, 2023, we have added commentary from Steve Moseley, Greg Awtry and others from this area to provide a well-rounded opinion section. There is also the whimsical little weekly piece called “The World According to Rico” and two columns a week from Melanie Wilkinson. There is also the weekly piece called “Questions of the Week” if individuals have questions they want to email in, and we will certainly try to answer them. 
And of course, we will continue to cover county, court, city, features, etc., in an effort to bring news about York County, Nebraska.
