mailmanAt our board of education meeting last night (November 23rd), Dan Veaner, our most consistent attendee for the past 15 ½ years, told us he was retiring from the Lansing Star.

I’ve lived in Lansing long enough to remember Matt Shulman of the Lansing Community News, and various other reporters from the Lansing Ledger coming to board meetings before I came on in 2001. In my tenure as a school board member, more than any other reporter, Dan has been part and parcel of school district communication.

Some may remember the rough waters the district navigated through to get to the stability we now enjoy. I have not always agreed with Dan over the years, but I’ve always appreciated the work he and Karen have done to get Lansing news out to our community.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I’ll miss Dan himself – even his groan-inducing jokes before the official start of meetings. The LSO is scheduled to end on December 18th, 2020, not only leaving our community with a void of a news source we’ve relied on for years, but of a fellow Lansingite who’s made a difference in our community.
