Welcome to the new and improved version of The Valley News! It is with great excitement that we reveal our latest make-over.
As you can see, a lot has changed with the layout and design of this newspaper. I hope you'll find it to be even more eye-catching and easy to read than it was before.
If you're one of our readers in the Tri-Lakes area, this is likely your first encounter with The Valley News, as you've previously received the Tri-Lakes Free Trader Today. As you can see, news from your area will now be represented here along with those areas The Valley News has served for more than 60 years.
As our coverage area expands, it is my hope that our focus on each and every one of the individual communities this newspaper serves remains just as strong. I feel our biggest strength as your free, weekly newspaper is being able to represent some of the close-to-home stories, issues, and upcoming events that often go ignored by other news sources.
By the same token, my goal is to also offer some of the top local news from this area so you can stay informed regardless of whether you purchase a subscription to a daily newspaper.
We'd love to hear your feedback, both on our new design and our ever-evolving use of content. Let us know if you like what you see, and especially what it is you'd like to see.
We hope you enjoy this new product, but if for some reason you don't, feel free to let us know. Our goal is to deliver you a high-quality newspaper that's worth reading, and I'm confident The Valley News will continue to be just that.
