SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

I’m very excited to announce some important editorial moves we’ve made here at The Dispatch and within Picket Fence Media. Please join me in welcoming Collin Breaux as the new City Editor of The Capistrano Dispatch. Collin joins us after spending the past five years at the Panama City News Herald, a daily newspaper in northern Florida, where he impressively reported on the damage wrought by Hurricane Michael on the area while also holding down the education beat and other important subjects. His passion for community journalism will serve San Juan Capistrano well as he brings his talents to the West Coast, and we’re excited to have him join our team.
Former Capistrano Dispatch City Editor Shawn Raymundo has moved over to take on the San Clemente beat for the San Clemente Times, while Lillian Boyd has been promoted to Group Senior Editor while also maintaining her role as City Editor for the Dana Point Times.
I’m very proud of the efforts of our editorial team here at Picket Fence Media, and am excited about these changes as we continue to expand our efforts through social media to provide best-in-class, hyper-local “news you can use” every day.
Welcome to the team, Collin, and congrats, Shawn and Lillian.
