Kelley Granger
is a journalism student at SUNY New Paltz, where she is news editor of the New Paltz Oracle and vice president of the New Paltz Equestrian Team. If she’s not behind a computer, she can be found training for the next intercollegiate horse show or exploring the natural wonders of the upstate region. She has an insatiable appetite for travel: Two cross-country road trips and multiple visits to Europe and Morocco have not satisfied her craving for adventure and cultural discovery. Kelley was Chronogram’s editorial intern this summer in our Kingston office. Her experiences abroad helped influence her ideas for unique honeymoon getaways starting on page 64.

Carolyn Niehaus is a junior English major at the University of Rochester, where she is a founding editor of the literary magazine Number Nine. Her work on Bethlehem Central High School’s Thinking Reed, as well as her poetry studies under Steven Guilfoyle and Sally Keith, have fostered her interest in writing. Carolyn’s work on the replica ship Half Moon, her love of contra dancing, and pursuit of interesting music provide ample reasons for adventures throughout the Northeast. Although still considering the multitude of options available after college, Carolyn’s summer as Chronogram’s Books intern has planted ideas for future endeavors. She compiled and wrote the Short Takes that appear on page 58.

Jack Rightmyer teaches 7th-grade English at Bethlehem Middle School in Delmar, New York. He is an adjunct professor of education at Siena College and book reviewer at The Daily Gazette newspaper in Schenectady. His articles have appeared in such national magazines as Poets and Writers, Highlights for Children, and Writer’s Digest. His first book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Classroom, will be published by Cottonwood Press in January 2008. His article on the Edwood Film Festival, written while working as a teacher intern at Chronogram, begins on page 32.

Amanda May Whistle hails from the post-industrial wasteland of Binghamton, New York. A senior journalism major at the University at Albany, she hopes to get paid to cover scandal and mayhem for a newspaper after graduation, but also harbors dreams of following her geology minor and becoming a seismologist. After two years as news editor of the Albany Student Press, she is now editor-in-chief of the student-owned and -operated weekly newspaper, where she has written breaking news, feature stories, and a sports article. In 2007, she won honorable mention in the UAlbany Rowley Journalistic Writing competition for a profile of a resident in a low-income housing project. Her preview about Chatham’s food film series is on page 91.
