While it’s still in its testing phase, the Herald Weekly is proud to announce that we’ve launched a stylish and functional new website to bring you the local news and information you count on.

The new site was created by Nate Davis, technology consultant and owner of www.LKNFun.com.

The first thing you’ll notice is the sleek design that makes your news and information more attractive and easier to read.

But the new look is a small change compared to some of the site’s newest features you’ll enjoy.

Here’s a quick look at some of our favorite new features:

 

Coupons and promotions

The website will be your destination for local deals. Area businesses will share coupons and special promotions with you through our site.

If you own a local business and are looking for a unique way to bring in new customers, let us know how we can help with online ads, coupons and promotions.

 

Improved photo collections

Almost every week, we print one or two pictures when we have dozens to share. Our new site will bring you elegant photo slideshows so you can get a complete look at local events and people.

That means we can also accept more photos from our readers, and we look forward to receiving more submissions.

 

Linked with Facebook

You no longer need to login to our site to join the conversation about local issues. Comments are now linked through your Facebook account, so making your voice heard has never been easier.

And don’t worry – you can choose whether those comments show up on your Facebook timeline.

 

Mobility

The Herald’s new website can easily be viewed on a variety of devices.

Whether you’re browsing at work on your desktop, relaxing at home with your iPad or catching up on the latest news on your mobile phone, get the same great content wherever you are – and however you choose to view it.

 

We hope you’ll keep in mind that the site is a work in progress, but we are working to make it the best community news website anywhere. If you come across something that you think needs our attention, let us know!
