Valley Home News

Fire season, this column is dedicated to all the many firefighters who are working terrible long hours in tremendous heat, their hard work is so greatly appreciated. As I write this column I have just received word that a fire engine is stationed at my cousin Brad's home in Jamestown!

Many of you know me as Tasha Martinelli or Tasha Sweet, youngest of Bill and Kay Martinelli's daughters, mother to Kaeli and Deagan, and serial small-town volunteer along with my husband, Jason.

Happy To Follow The ‘Write’ Path

The first of July is sort of my anniversary. It was many, many years ago and in a place far, far away (no, not the Star Wars galaxy, New York State) that I had my first foray into the news business. It was during my final semester at college (second year) when my English professor told me about a radio station that was opening up in the same town as the college.
