My name is Carrie Ann Knauer and I'm the new Neighborhoods correspondent for Linwood, New Windsor, Union Bridge, Uniontown and Johnsville.
You might recognize my name - and picture - as I am also the food columnist of "Carrie's Kitchen," which runs Wednesdays in the Life & Times section of the Carroll County Times.
I was also a staff reporter for the Times, covering New Windsor and Union Bridge, for 11 years. I had a son in March and decided I wanted to be home with him, and have served as a correspondent for the Times since then, which allows me to write from home.
I'm originally from Harford County, but have lived in Carroll for the past 10 years. My husband and I greatly enjoy being a part of this community, and I look forward to now being able to focus on more community-related news stories in my new role as a Neighborhoods correspondent.
If you have any suggestions for Neighborhoods items in my coverage area, such as events, fundraisers, awards, awareness articles or interesting people profiles, please send them my way. Email is the best form of contact, at email@example.com, but you can also call me at 410-596-9248.
To have information considered for a column item, please send me the information several weeks in advance of a coming event or its registration deadline.
I look forward to hearing from you and sharing your community's news each week.
