Meet our new intern

Tyler Northey

Hello Pine Journal readers,

I'm Tyler Northey, the new summer intern at the Pine Journal. And here is a little bit more about the person behind the stories that you may read this summer. I am a twin to my brother, Carter Northey, (we don't look anything alike) and son to Sue and Shawn Northey. We are a busy family during the summer and school year. We always seem to be on the move from practices to games and traveling up to our cabin on any open weekends.

This fall I will be a senior at Esko High School. I'm involved in cross country running, Nordic skiing, fall musical, National Honor Society, class officers, and editing our yearbook. This will be my fourth year being part of the yearbook staff and I have loved every minute of it. I'm able to use my photography skills along with learning about graphic design while creating yearbooks. I often refer to myself as a "yearbook nerd" — I'm always looking at graphics and layouts that the book could use.

You will see me holding my camera at almost every event I attend. I love capturing those special moments and making memories last longer. My passion for photography started in seventh grade when taking baseball pictures of my brother's team. There I found I could capture the height of the action.

I started my summer with the New Wine tour. New Wine is a church-based group that performs a Bible-based musical each year. This year we did "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," I was one of the 12 brothers along with being the butler. We were gone for nine days, traveling out to Colorado and Utah, staying and performing at churches along the way.

While that was a great way to kick off the season, I'm excited to be back home and ready to dive into the rest of the season.

Besides working at the Pine Journal this summer, I will be training for my school sports. I enjoy roller skiing on the bike trails and running with teammates in Jay Cooke State Park. On the weekends I'll be up at my cabin with my family enjoying the lake and outdoors swimming, kayaking or biking. At nights I enjoy hanging out with friends at a campfire or getting a half-price appetizer with them.

I am very excited to be a part of the Pine Journal staff this summer and share my pictures and stories with readers. I can't wait to learn more about journalism and the greater Carlton County community with the help of the Pine Journal staff.
