About Caleb Heeringa
HEERINGA, CALEB is the public safety reporter at The Bellingham Herald, a 25,000 circulation daily paper that covers Bellingham and Whatcom Counties, in the northwestern corner of Washington State near the Canadian border. In addition to covering crime and courts, he recently began a weekly column reviewing beers for the paper. Heeringa enjoys the unpredictable nature of covering crime, having the company pay for his beer, and the irony of covering beer-related crime. After starting as an intern at the Herald in 2006 and then part-time news clerk shortly after, he graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham with a double major in journalism and political science. Heeringa was promoted to a full-time position shortly before graduation and often skipped class to work, passing his final classes by an act of God. He enjoys creating and listening to music, brewing and drinking beer and reading The Economist, sometimes all at once. His future plans include spending his life savings traveling the world and then sleeping on couches while deciding whether to pursue law school, graduate school or more journalism.
