About Steve E.

I am a breaking news reporter for The Californian, covering courts and delicious bad news.  I get in at 6 a.m. and write about anything that happened overnight -- murder, bad crash, fire etc.
 Then I check in on the courts along with Steven Mayer and write about any salacious court story that we feel will contribute to the enjoyment of our readers.
I'm 59, been with the newspaper 29 years, been in journalism 38 years, mostly covering crime, gore, human misery, tragedy and smut.
I've worked in the Bay Area and San Luis Obispo. I've lived in Washington, Texas, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
I play golf, softball, tennis and other sports. I love to camp, fish and backpack.
I have two children -- Todd, a newspaper photographer in Klamath Falls; Kara, a corporate communications writer for Microsoft in Seattle in the X-box division..
I got married in 2006 on a cruise to Alaska. Her name was Mary Smith (really), but is now Mary Swenson. She has a precocious daughter, Lori, who attends Bakersfield College. Mary is the district claims manager for the State Compensation Insurance Fund.
We like to watch movies, dance and attend various entertainment events. We also like to cuddle. I root for the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Mariners.
I am the union president at work,  and the coffee czar in the newsroom.
I believe in hard work, spiritual development, fun and loud laughter.
