New editor named at The Beacon


John Schaffner, Publisher of The Beacon, is pleased to announce the appointment of Donna Lueke as Editor of the publication based in east Ottawa County. She replaces Angie Adair Zam, who recently took another position which will allow her to work from home to be with her young child.

“Donna has a love of the written word and has been active in a number of local organizations for several years, which should be a plus for her,” stated Schaffner. “At the top of her resume she wrote … ‘whatever the job, wherever I am, whenever I can, I love to write’.”


For the last eight years, Donna Lueke has been the editor of the Lakeside Property Owners Directory. She has also written a book of poetry and photography titled Marblehead Mornings, and has edited a number of other books and publications. She began her career as an English and French instructor.

Donna is a graduate of Adrian College and took classes at Wayne State and Oakland Universities toward a masters degree.

“I am very excited about this opportunity to work with The Beacon,” says Lueke. It will allow me to pursue my passion for writing and for the community.”

Donna Lueke is a resident of Marblehead. Local residents are encouraged to submit stories or story ideas to Donna at The Beacon via her e-mail address, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
