Digital publishing – online, social, mobile – is all about connections and engagement. Good reporting, active reader contributions and comments, and, then access across all sorts of platforms and devices (including print), make for an essential community publishing effort.

As of last Friday, the Review made the necessary leap as we launched our totally revamped website and a new mobile enhanced website for smartphones. Graphically the site is cleaner and a lot easier to navigate.

Look for local bloggers covering food, religion, bar life, local history and politics. And reader comments are now not only much more visible on the home page, they are also posted live. This will make for a more genuine conversation, and, we expect a civil one. Those who abuse our comment policy will be disinvited.

You will also find more news about community events and organizations on the site. Expect to see more frequent news updates and breaking news on, too.

There are a lot of ways to be connected to the Review. Sign up for breaking news updates delivered by email. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Would love to hear your take on new digital efforts. Post a comment or email Jean Lotus, our editor, at
