Veteran journalist Lou Elliott Jones has joined the editorial team of the Chiefland Citizen as a news reporter.

Jones, a Louisiana native, holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Texas A & I, a bachelor's degree in food service management from Johnson & Wales University and an associate's degree in the culinary arts from JWU.

Early in her career, she worked with Gannett Company in various capacities including states news editor for USA Today and assistant news editor for the Pensacola News Journal.

In 1991, she moved to The Virginian Pilot in Norfolk, Va., where she was a bureau editor.

After her husband Grady retired from the Navy as a videographer, the couple moved to Raleigh in eastern Levy County where he could be close to his Gainesville roots.

"We are excited to have someone with Lou's talent and experience join our news team," said Citizen editor Carolyn Risner. "We are all looking forward to showcasing her work as she reports the news to Levy Countians about Levy Countians."

Jones' primary assignments will be covering local government and the law and courts beats.
