New year, new look for La Vernia News

New year, new look for La Vernia News
NANNETTE KILBEY-SMITH Readers of the La Vernia News in print will get a slimmer, sleeker newspaper in 2012. Look for changes to our website, too!

As the year comes to a close, we often look back to see what the year looks like in hindsight. However, The La Vernia News is looking forward to a bright new year, and changes to the look, feel, and content of our print product and the newspaper’s website!

For a start, we’re dropping “the” from our name, assuming the newspaper’s original name, La Vernia News.

In keeping with current trends, readers of the weekly issues will notice a slimmer, sleeker newspaper. The familiar broadsheet will be trimmed by a few inches in width, making the paper a more reader-friendly experience easier to read and handle. However, we won’t sacrifice content, and readers still will enjoy pages bursting with news, photos, local events, and much more.

Speaking of content, we hope you’re enjoying some features introduced this year, such as the WOW (what or where) photo contest, our “Friends and Neighbors” photo page, and the “Furred, Finned, and Feathered Friends,” featuring readers’ pets.

Do you enjoy the regular columns? These address a range of news and views, from politics to the economy, and faith to fortunes. Featured columns include “The Economist” by M. Ray Perryman, “Keeping the Faith” by Ronnie McBrayer, “Gray Matters” by Patty Sitchler, “From the Publisher” by Elaine Kolodziej, “Practical Money Matters” by Jason Alderman, and “Northerly Breezes” by New Berlin’s own Dawn Young, as well as the church columns from the La Vernia United Methodist Church, the First Baptist Church, Immanuel Lutheran Church, the La Vernia Christian Teaching Center, and St. Ann’s Catholic Church.

And that’s just in print! We can’t wait to reveal our new-look website, with more features and content than ever! The new site will offer more photos, articles, and online content, with interactive items, such as functions for readers and businesses to post events online.

What do you like about the La Vernia News now? What would you like to see in the future?

We welcome feedback, as well as article and photo submissions from readers, businesses, and community members.
