two years ago, this 99-year-old newspaper had carried the name
Glendale News-Press since 1928. Based on input from community leaders
and just plain folks, we decided to return to our roots, bringing
Glendale back to the News-Press. For us, this is a strong statement
of commitment to the residents of our fair city. This is a great
community, with a rich history and a vibrant future. Glendale
deserves a newspaper bearing its name.
In addition to the new look and name, we have moved the Community
Forum opinion page from page 2 to make room for special regular daily
local news content. Readers will find Community Forum with
commentaries and letters to the editor inside the paper. Today, for
example, you will find it on page 6.
Each day on page 2, we will highlight a specific topic of local
significance. Here is the page 2 lineup:
* Monday -- Commerce, devoted to local business issues and people.
* Tuesday -- Youth & Education, with emphasis on activities of
young people in the community.
* Wednesday -- Boomers & Beyond, concentrating on the lives of a
group formerly known as Senior Citizens.
* Thursday -- Civic Pride, all about clubs, organizations and
other important local items, including Pet of the Week.
* Friday -- Politics.
* Saturday -- The Week in Review.
Over the next few weeks, we will add more features and make other
changes to better serve local newspaper readers. We are very excited
about the future of your community newspaper, and we welcome your
