  1. Hi. I have a thought, although it might not be feasible for you to do. I go into your site several times a day to see if there is anything new, especially now during fire season. But sometimes the story doesn’t change for days and it means a lot of clicking for nothing. It would be nice if you could send out a brief email/text message to subscribers that simply says: ‘new content now available’ or some such so we know to look in. It would save us time and perhaps help build your circulation.

    I appreciate your efforts and I do understand your limitations. This is just a thought. No response needed .

    Thank you!

    • Hi Ron – Thanks for your suggestion. We are working on setting up “push notifications,” which would send an alert to your phone when we publish something new. For now, we have a twice-weekly email newsletter you can sign up for if you want to make sure you don’t miss anything, and if you use an RSS reader you can follow us that way. The complete list is also under the “latest news” tab under “News” in the menu bar. We change the headline to say updated with the time when we update articles, particularly during emergencies, so you can easily see if something has been updated. We also put things out on social media if you use that at all. We’re working on better ways to let people know when we have new articles or updates, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have those notifications in place. Thanks!
