October 14, 2009 We're pleased to offer readers online options, including being able to catch up with front page stories, find out how their favorite high school sports team is doing, read local columnists and get a feel for what people are thinking through our Letters to the Editor link.
This week, as in recent weeks, we're again reminded of one aspect of our online edition: Availability of local stories, opinions and conditions to people from around the country.
In this global age of instant access to all kinds of information, we never know what stories will catch the national eye but it's apparent that some local issues have a universality and strike a chord that resonates.
We're not surprised. People, regardless of where they live, face many of the same day-to-day problems and joys life brings.
While this is a byproduct of a technological age that we are all increasingly linked into, as a community-oriented newspaper committed to our local readership we are first and foremost a reflection of the communities we directly serve. While our online edition is a snapshot of our weekly print coverage, our Web site does offer local readers a quick and easy opportunity to let their voices resonate through letters, guest columns or opinion pieces.
We appreciate feedback from area readers and encourage continued discussion. Take a minute to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, write to P.O. Box 278, Imlay City, MI 48444, or visit www.tricitytimes-online and click on the 'letter to the editor' link and let us know your thoughts.
