'About Town' section is about your community

If you’re paying attention to the print version of this week’s News-Times — and of course we really hope you are — you’ll notice a pretty big change.

Instead of sports gracing the cover of the second section (the “B” section), they’re folded into the “A” section. In order to bring our readers a more streamlined and complete package of arts, entertainment and community news, we’ve packaged all of that — features about your neighbors, A&E coverage, a beefed-up calendar, birth notices, wedding writeups and engagement announcements — into a “B” section shared by our two papers.

It’s called About Town, and we’re excited to roll it out this week. We’ll be thrilled if you find it to be just that — news and photos about your neighbors, your town and your community.
