"refresh." One of the most asked questions we hear is: "When are
you folks done posting each day?"
For the most part, the majority of our edition is
online at 8 a.m., but we continue to post through the morning, so
make sure you hit the refresh button when reading to see what new
stories have just been added.
We will continue to add breaking news as it happens,
so donít forget to stop by during the day to see what is happening
in our county during the day.
Got a good piece of news, information or
something that we can all brag about? If you do, e-mail Mike and let
us tell everyone about it. Plus you can win cash. Every submission,
whether we use it or not, will get your name in the Close Up grab
bag. At the end of the month we will draw a name and someone will
get $25 just for dropping us an e-mail. If you wish, we will be
happy to donate your winnings to the organization of your choice.
