We're Not Quite Ready Yet - Rolling Out in November

This site, Winnebago County News , is a labor of love. (It is also a work in progress.) My goal is to promote our local weekly print newspapers, and radio and television media in Winnebago County. Why? I grew up delivering a wide-variety of daily and weekly newspapers.  I had newsprint on my hands every day going to grade school. In college I wrote for the college newspaper, and I helped revive our old college radio station. Later, I became a professional copywriter, and eventually came to support the technology used in the print and web publishing industries. I eventually plan to post abstracts, one or two-line extracts, of local weekly newspaper articles to promote the weekly newspapers that do not have a web presence. I will need some volunteer help with that. This site is designed to point you to local weekly newspapers and other news and event listing sources.
