Editor’s Note 04/08/11

For weeks now I have been looking forward to telling our readers about our new and improved website. I’ve had to hold my tongue about it longer than I wished. It is not complete, but it is up and looking pretty good at www.nbcityjournal.com. It has a lot, but not all, of the articles here in the newspaper. It also has polls, weather, twitter news and a place for more...

Editor’s Note 3/18/2011

Everyday the news from Japan seems to get worse. Each disaster from the earthquake to the tsunami to the nuclear power plant is more and more dangerous. How much more can these poor people take? When we all complain about money and what we can and can’t have, we should look at the Japanese people and be thankful for what we do have. All of our situations could be a more...
