Welcome to I am Shawn Hogendorf, a local resident with a love for community journalism.

Stillwater Current is an independent, locally-owned and operated website focusing exclusively on things happening in our town.

I want Stillwater Current to become a trusted resource for my neighbors to find and share locally-relevant information, while respectfully engaging in discussions about things happening in our town.

I believe an engaged, informed and well-managed online community will grow stronger — and make Stillwater a better place to live and do business.


My hope for Stillwater Current is that it grows to become a sustainable, community-supported local news and information hub. There’s a lot going on around town — and I want to help share information, and encourage thoughtful online discussions about all things local.

That said, many of the stories in our community are best told by you.

I encourage you to share your news, photos, opinions, announcements and links to stories that are relevant to our community. Stillwater Current will feature posts written by local residents, business owners and civic leaders.

Content on the site is curated, edited and moderated by Shawn Hogendorf, a local resident and community journalist.
