Building a Web site that we’ll use, too

Senior Staff Writer Lucy Shultze, in conjunction with Web designer John Herren, has been one of the driving forces behind the EAGLE’s new Web site, and even she’s been a bit surprised at how much she is using the features of the new site even after reading most of the paper while at work. (March 12, 2010, Page 4A)

EAGLE’s new Web site full of features

It’s been discussed for several years and it’s been in the serious planning and development stages for six months.
