New website coming today

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 9:24 AM

We are planning a change to a rebuilt website at 1 p.m. this afternoon.

The look will be much the same, though there will be lots of new features. Some of the obvious additions will be map links with restaurant and entertainment listings. There will be many changes on our "back end" operating system that you can't see, but should improve functionality.

The biggest improvement will be the ability for increased interaction with readers. We hope it will spur more commenting and cross-referencing on all articles, not just blog posts. We'll have easy links to social media, too.

Blog posting should become a great deal easier. There will be a new registration process that will follow a format standard on many websites. I hope the transition is relatively smooth and that regular readers/commenters will tune in.

As always, you can direct questions and problems to me at
