Ed Vielmetti is AnnArbor.com's lead blogger and one of its most treasured resources. A native of Michigan's U.P., he has a knack for crawling the web for hard-to-find information. His speciality is diving for details on issues that affect people's lives. On any given day, he might blog about water levels on the Huron River, how to approach a FOIA request, what neat items are found on the bulletin board at a local cafe — or he might just post some maps, lots and lots of maps. "I love maps because my family is full of geologists," Vielmetti says, "and geologists love maps as a way to describe the part of the world that's not visible on the surface."
