Dear Readers;

Over the past few months, as we have begun our news site, we have posted a variety of material to get us started. There is so much to cover here in Northern Michigan, we can’t possibly cover it all.

We know there are several mainstream newspapers covering the same geographical area. Some news stories they can cover better than we can because of larger staff. So, what would you like to see our news site do in this new year? Here is your chance to speak up!


Feature stories on local people? Local businesses? Local events? More area church news? More opinion pieces? Something else??

Tell us what you liked and what you’d like to see more of! How can we serve you better? This is your chance to have a say in the media world. Let us know.

I think this is going to be a great site. Kurt. Maybe a story about people – like your dad.
