After a couple of months' hiatus while I worked on several large projects, including this one on Northern California's nut boom, the Jefferson Journal is back in business. As you can see, the format has been changed to more closely match the Capital Press website, which illustrates this blog's renewed focus on providing news, information and perspectives that are relevant to rural readers in the north state.
Look for posts to be a little shorter and quicker, with fewer pullout quotes and more links to pertinent articles and releases. You'll still find my occasional commentaries and photo galleries from events that I cover.
As some local news organizations have taken to charging extra for their articles, above and beyond what you pay for Internet service, it's become all the more important to provide alternative sources of information about what's happening in the community. As always, thanks for stopping by.
