Baldwin joins Lincoln County News

Brunswick native Samuel J. Baldwin has been hired as a staff reporter for the Lincoln County News, covering Waldoboro, Jefferson Somerville, Nobleboro and Bremen as a general assignment reporter.
He comes to the LCN after a brief stint as an outdoors writer at the Casper Star-Tribune in Casper, Wyo. He covered hunting and fishing, as well as some health, home and garden and entertainment stories.
“I’m glad to be back in Maine, and you can only write about archery and fly fishing for so long before you miss telling readers about issues that really matter,” Baldwin told the weekly newspaper.
Baldwin is currently living in Brunswick, but said that he hopes to move to Lincoln County with his fiancée soon.
“There are a lot of beautiful areas up here, and it seems like a place where people have a stake in what their neighbors do,” Baldwin said. “Any good leads on rentals would definitely be appreciated.”
Baldwin graduated with a journalism degree from Arizona State University in Phoenix, Ariz., in May.
“After writing in Phoenix and Casper, working for the LCN will be a very welcome change,” he said. “It’s definitely small-town politics; and to me, that means politics where even the politicians care what happens. I’m looking forward to finding out what people here need to know and trying to give that to them.”
