It's about time. I'm not a huge fan of the News Journal's site (too busy, too blinky, and with too flashy-move-y thingies, though it is getting better). But the Journal's site is head and shoulders above the current State News site. At least the News Journal posts its stories by day and by section and provides archives and some sense of order.
The current State News "News" section for Central Delaware, for example, includes a headline and teaser that suggests that Milford has a CompPlan meeting "tonight."
City looks at comp planIt's only when you click through that you realize that that headline has been up there since September 12. That meeting is already over.
MILFORD — City planners will meet in special session at 7 tonight to begin revising Milford’s comprehensive plan.
That's just one of several gripes. But what's important to note is that the State News is not a terrible newspaper. They have some decent reporters and do a respectable job covering Downstate Delaware.
I'm hoping that Mr. McKown and his team can bring some on-line order to the News.
